Amazing photography

Heard about this on Science Friday (NPR) on the way home from the zoo - I mean grocery store. Definitely worth the 5 minutes to see these amazing time-lapse pictures of our awesome world - enjoy! Shooting Stars

It is stunning, especially the issue of coordinating all those cameras.

I realized I had to click on the right most icon to get a full screen. Also I turned off my lights for viewing.

Very nice, thanks!

That's just spectacular, thanks for providing the link. I also watched full screen, highly recommended. Cheers...

I look at Vimeo quite often. It is different than Utube in that it is more art/talent oriented. It's good that others have discovered them, too. Yes, and turn your sound up/on and full size the screen. Here's some of my favorites I have had bookmarked:

Good Morning Chicago - Your daily sunrise for the month of June on Vimeo

The Mountain on Vimeo

Within Two Worlds on Vimeo

Earth Time Lapse on Vimeo

Open Your Rise on Vimeo

A Day in the Life of a Fire Lookout. on Vimeo

Pilbara - Western Australia, 2012 on Vimeo

Fall on Vimeo

What a wonderful world we live in...

This was wonderful, I've only seen 'northern lights' in person once, but it was one of the most magical experiences I've ever had. YMMV

Wow! I've seen the odd video on Vimeo but I never explored the site. I assumed it was a youtube wannabe, but after viewing your links and exploring staff picks, IMO it's a cut above the typical youtube video. Thanks, I look forward to exploring Vimeo now, a site I had overlooked before...
