Today, I decided to take you in space. If you aren’t an astronaut and want to enjoy space environment like stars breaking around you, flying in space etc, then don’t worry Don Pettit, an astronaut at International Space Station and photographer Alex Rivest captured an amazing space environment video.The time-lapse video shows how star trails propagate.
The video takes you in a feeling where you sitting in International Space Station and watching star trails around you. More like, sitting in your room with a wide window and its raining outside.
Don Pettit writes, “Space Station makes one revolution every 90 minutes (the Moon takes 28 days). As a result, long-exposure pictures taken from the Station show star trails as circular arcs, with the center of rotation being the poles of Space Station”.
The photographer Alex Rivest said, “On a lucky night living in the city, you can maybe see 5 stars if you are lucky, so to be able to get away from light pollution and be reminded of how many stars there are is always a humbling experience”.
