Awesome Timelapse Shows The Earth Turning And Not The Stars

This is so cool. Usually, timelapses show the night sky of stars moving around Earth but we know that’s not true, it’s Earth that’s moving and rotating and turning. Photographer Lance Page made this time lapse to represent our Earth turning by making the camera move along with the North Star. That way we see our world move while the stars stay still.


Watch The World's Most Complete Stegosaurus Skeleton Being Assembled

First discovered in Wyoming, the world’s most complete Stegosaurus skeleton has found a new home across the pond at the Natural History Museum in London, England. And you can now watch the museum’s curators and palaeontologists re-assemble one of the world’s oldest and best-preserved jigsaw puzzles. The process originally took about four hours, but this timelapse of the entire assembly will demand just 24 seconds of your limited attention span.


Clever Video Shows How A Snowflake Gets Formed

Video: Here’s a clever video that shows the “formation” of a snowflake. It’s actually footage of a snowflake melting, but it’s played in reverse, so it seems like we’re seeing the birth of a snowflake. But even though it uses that bit of trickery, it’s such a beautiful process to see. I wish we could see it in real life.


Watch A 55-Day Overhaul Of The Largest Passenger Plane In Two Minutes

Emirates’ very first mammoth Airbus A380 has racked up some crazy stats since first being delivered to the airline back in 2008. And after 3000 takeoffs, 20 million kilometres and 1.2 million passengers, it’s no wonder the plane’s first major checkup took a total of 55 days. Thanks to the magic of timelapse, though, you get to watch the whole thing go down in under two minutes.


This Ultra-HD Timelapse Shows The Biggest Sunspot In 22 Years

Last month, the biggest sunspot in 22 years traversed across the sun. Labelled AR 2192, it was big enough to see without the need for a telescope. This awesome timelapse animation can show you what you missed.


Rest Your Tired Eyes With These Aurora Encounters Of The Third Kind

Video: We have featured the timelapse videos of Stian Rekdal in the past. This one — titled Encounters — is just as impressive as his other work and makes me feel even worse about the fact that I haven’t travelled to see the Northern Lights yet.


'Astronaut': A Stunning Timelapse Composed Of Photos From The ISS

Sure, you could go outside and spend hours, or even days or weeks, taking photos for your own timelapse. Or, if you’re feeling a little lazy and just want the most excellent of images possible, why not raid the stores from the astronauts aboard the International Space Station? They’ve captured more than enough material for everyone… and it is the very best.


The Largest Hot Air Balloon Festival In The World Is Breathtakingly Epic

Time lapse anything and it immediately turns epic. Take something as kooky as the annual hot air balloon festival in Albuquerque, New Mexico where 750 hot air balloons get together to lift off and put it in a time lapse video and it looks absolutely incredible. It’s like a ballet in the air.


Good Morning, Marseille

Video: Marseille is one the biggest and most important ports in France. This time-lapse by Dider Viodé shows not only that, but its beautiful historic buildings, fantastic landscapes and, one of the things I miss the most since I moved to England, the light that makes from the south of France a gorgeous place to live in.


Watch The High-Tech Levi's Stadium Being Built In A Dazzling Timelapse

Earlier in September, the San Francisco 49ers’ spanking new high-tech stadium opened with its 600 WiFi access points and green roof and hot dog-ordering app. But just 29 months ago, Levi’s Stadium was an empty lot in the ground. The entire stadium takes shape in this two-minute timelapse video.
