Sky Glow and Aurora from Space

We must be a golden age of time-lapse photography. Digital cameras, cheap intervalometers (devices used to program the cameras to take x number of images every n seconds) and easy ways to compile the image series into a video (I use quicktime 7) means that the entry cost is quite low. Of course, doing something great with it takes craft as well. This isn’t mine (you can tell by the fact that it’s high-quality!) but rather a rework of some time-lapses taken by astronauts on the International Space Station by Alex Rivest. Visit his blog for a in-depth analysis of the different colors and bands you can see in the earth’s atmosphere, it’s really something else.
