On the night between 18 and 19 November, a good portion of the world was able to observe the longest partial lunar eclipse since the 15th century. Despite being classified as partial, it was nearly total with 97% of the Moon covered by the Earth’s umbral shadow. For those of you who couldn’t see it, Griffith Observatory has published a timelapse showing the entire eclipse in only one minute.[Read More…]

We’ve seen some stunning work from filmmaker Seán Doran before. This time, he made a stunning 4K timelapse video of the sun using available NASA images: nearly 80,000 of them. As a result, he created a video of the sun and its movement and activity over the course of one month, and yes – it’s as amazing as it sounds.
I see a lot of macro and timelapse scroll by my screen and when the two come together, they can produce something that’s just wonderful. When you add bugs into the mix as well, you get something that’s a little bit extra special, like this beautiful short film from Thomas Blanchard.
Despite describing this as an “experimental film”, Thomas combines both of these techniques masterfully to make this incredible creation. It took four months worth of patience to make and is comprised of 8K video of insects on the RED Helium 8K and 8K timelapse of carnivorous plants on the Canon EOS 5DS R DSLR.
Mushroom growth timelapse videos never fail to amaze me and mesmerize me. Netflix’s Fantastic Fungi is filled with them, and I honestly thought they were partially shot outside. However, you can’t shoot this kind of timelapses outdoors. In this video by WIRED, Fantastic Fungi director Louie Schwartzberg tells us more about it. He reveals the secrets behind his magical growth timelapse videos, telling you about how they’re filmed and why it’s done in a studio.
The 1984 Winter Olympics took place in Sarajevo, in former Yugoslavia (today Bosnia and Herzegovina). It was the first Winter Olympic Games held in a socialist state after many countries boycotted the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow.
Although the Olympic Village in Sarajevo is abandoned today, it inspires artists and urban explorers. One of them is Joerg Daiber of Little Big World. Using a drone and a tilt-shift effect, he shot a timelapse of the grandiose venue in an unexpected way – he turned it into a miniature.
The world of fungi is not only mysterious and magical but also essential for life on Earth. Fantastic Fungi is a movie that shows all this beauty and importance. Its trailer is just out, and it really got me interested. But more than that, it’s filled with jaw-dropping growth timelapse of fungi that make even the trailer itself pretty enjoyable to watch.
On 16 June current year, the ISS astronauts Thomas Pesquet and Shane Kimbrough went on a spacewalk. They were on a mission to install a new solar array for the ISS, and they were even caught on camera from Earth (kind of). But if you’d like to get a closer look at the recent spacewalk, ESA has announced two timelapse videos showing the two astronauts in action.
Aerial timelapses are usually pretty cool and who doesn’t love animals? So, it makes sense to combine the two. And that’s exactly what Israeli drone photographer, Lior Patel did in this timelapse as he spent several months following and filming a large herd of between 1,000 and 1,700 sheep, along with accompanying dogs and humans.
It’s a fascinating and hypnotic video, and very different from most of the others we see blasting across our screens these days – particularly from drones. Seeing the sheep move together as a single cohesive unit is mesmerising. It still amazes me that they all just stick together and follow each other without randomly dispersing in whichever directions they want.
Last week’s partial solar eclipse lasted for about 2.5 hours, leaving photographers with an opportunity to capture some stunning shots. Photographer Göran Strand (previously) managed to pack it into only ten seconds. It took patience, time, and a whole lot of photos to make it happen. 50,000 photos, to be exact. But he ended up with an incredibly smooth and detailed timelapse that you can see below.
