Time lapse videos seem to be really in fashion as of late, but if directors keep editing videos like the one captioned right below you won’t ever see me complain. Featured in today’s Astronomy Picture of the Day by NASA, Daniel López time lapsed flowing clouds, a setting sun that shows numerous green flashes, the [...]
