Video – The View
It is very unlikely that we, the general population, will ever be able to voyage into outer space & see the wonders of the universe the way future space travelers will.
For us, the next best experience would be a long night flight. However, from the inside of an aircraft cabin you will not see much & more often than not, most passengers sleep.
The pilots in the flight deck are lucky as they get to see the night sky like no one else does. If one could create a time lapse video from the cockpit during a long night flight, it would be simply amazing , almost surreal.
A Boeing 777 pilot did just that! On a flight from Zurich to Sao Paolo in South America, this creative Senior First Officer created an amazing time lapse video as his plane flew over three continents. Keeping him company is the Milky Way, millions of stars & meteors of the Perseid Meteor shower!
During the flight he switches on the landing lights to greet pilots of other flights as they shoot by over head.
The accompanying music is perfect.
The pilot shot the sequences using a Sony A7S camera which has very high ISO ratings. He also used a fast f 1.4 lens.To shoot a time lapse like this from the cockpit of a plane travelling at nearly the speed of sound is simply indescribable.
WATCH & get ready to be mesmerized!
