Every year, sea ice fluctuates through the seasons, growing in the winter and shrinking in the summer. This year, Arctic sea ice reached its annual maximum on March 13, 2019. It wasn’t a record low, but it continued a trend of declining sea ice maximums and minimums. […]
The ESO has three astronomical observation sites spread across the Atacama region in Chile: Paranal with its VLT telescopes and soon the E-ELT, the oldest site: La Silla and ALMA located above 5000m/16400ft. Shot during the ESO UltraHD expeditions in 2011 and 2014, Christoph Malin spend many nights under the stars shooting the nightsky with advanced capturing and exposure ramping techniques. Together with state of the art post-production techniques we were able to remaster the old RAW-sequences in crisp 4K for 2019s viewing standards. Shot on Nikon D3s (2011) and Canon 6D (2014) cameras with GBT ramping software. […]
I never thought that I’d be making another one of these, but with all of the new footage from the International Space Station (ISS) that has been made public, I decided to give it another go.
All of 4K video and Time-lapse sequences were taken by the astronauts onboard the ISS (NASA/ESA). All footage has been edited, color graded, denoised, deflickered, stabilized by myself. Some of the 4K video clips were shot at 24frames/sec reflecting the actual speed of the space station over the earth. Shots taken at wider angels were speed up a bit to match the flow of the video.

Did Blue Planet II blow your mind? Or was it Planet Earth that changed your life? We know how special our shows are to so many of you and this is why we’re thrilled to announce that we have five more incredible Planet series in the works: One Planet: Seven Worlds | Perfect Planet | Frozen Planet II | Green Planet | Planet Earth III Revisit your favourite planet titles whilst you wait – The Blue Planet, Planet Earth, Frozen Planet, Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II.
Since the very first module Zarya launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome on 20 November 1998, the International Space Station has delivered a whole new perspective on this planet we call home. Join us as we celebrate 20 years of international collaboration and research for the benefit of Earth with ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst’s longest timelapse yet.
In just under 15 minutes, this clip takes you from Tunisia across Beijing and through Australia in two trips around the world. You can follow the Station’s location using the map at the top right-hand-side of the screen alongside annotations on the photos themselves.
This timelapse comprises approximately 21 375 images of Earth all captured by Alexander from the International Space Station and shown 12.5 times faster than actual speed. […]
I’d been hearing a lot about Betelgeuse lately, and I hadn’t realised how immensely huge it is. So I decided to make this short video which shows the size of Betelgeuse as compared to our Sun and the Solar System. I know VY Canis Majoris is bigger (actually even larger stars have been discovered), but this video isn’t about the largest star; I made it because Betelgeuse specifically was in the news.
