Probably the most insane skate boarding video I’ve ever seen. Spine tinglingly good.
Only they’re airplanes queued up for landing at an airport in Singapore. They look like fireflies or orbs or even UFOs. A really nice little clip and obviously a lot of effort went into it. Nice to see the aeroplane as part of the time lapse here too rather than something which gets edited out of a couple of frames.
You’d have to agree.
Or rather the The Leadenhall Building as it’s properly know as. This timelapse stood out to me due to the variety of techniques used and obviously the amount of time that went into shooting and editing it. Some of the shots are rather unusual and they’ve used a mixture of viewpoints to show it at its best. Hopefully there’s more footage to come.
Alex was over from Sweden last weekend and we met up for a quick pint in Peckham. Sure enough we got round to talking around skating, snowboard and biking videos.
He mentioned that we should watch this one, Waiting for Lightning. The trailer looks insanely good (which Emma found earlier). Can’t wait to get hold of a copy of this.
Cotic have a new little video out making a bit of a play on the 26″ vs 29″ wheels discussion that seems to be happening in the mountain biking world at present. I’m not really that bothered about the debate for now but there’s some handy riding in here and the video is beautifully shot.
Having said that this 29er does look like a LOT of fun!
Eruptive events on the sun can be wildly different. Some come just with a solar flare, some with an additional ejection of solar material called a coronal mass ejection (CME), and some with complex moving structures in association with changes in magnetic field lines that loop up into the sun’s atmosphere, the corona.
On July 19, 2012, an eruption occurred on the sun that produced all three. A moderately powerful solar flare exploded on the sun’s lower right hand limb, sending out light and radiation. Next came a CME, which shot off to the right out into space. And then, the sun treated viewers to one of its dazzling magnetic displays — a phenomenon known as coronal rain.
Over the course of the next day, hot plasma in the corona cooled and condensed along strong magnetic fields in the region. Magnetic fields, themselves, are invisible, but the charged plasma is forced to move along the lines, showing up brightly in the extreme ultraviolet wavelength of 304 Angstroms, which highlights material at a temperature of about 50,000 Kelvin. This plasma acts as a tracer, helping scientists watch the dance of magnetic fields on the sun, outlining the fields as it slowly falls back to the solar surface.
Best with the sound set to OFF!
Full Moon Silhouettes is a real time video of the moon rising over the Mount Victoria Lookout in Wellington, New Zealand. People had gathered up there this night to get the best view possible of the moon rising. I captured the video from 2.1km away on the other side of the city.
