We talked about it last week “Slow TV” and marked a card the world where you can find different clips by location. In case you missed it, here is how Alan Henry described “Slow TV”. in a 2016 Lifehacker article::
Things like long train rides through the countryside, relaxing views of canal rides, crackling fireplaces, quiet video of people knitting, and so on. These are all things you can do in the background while you work, concentrate, or just relax … the air of a perfectly normal event from start to finish.
Let’s say you traveled the world via these videos and now you need something that is out of this world. Now, could we suggest something else to add to your slow TV list: this four-hour real-time orbit of the moon. Here’s how to watch this video and what you will see.
How to orbit the moon from home
Created by the artist Seán DoranThe four-hour reconstruction of the moon’s orbit allows you to get a (relatively) close look at all of the craters, folds and ridges on its surface.
The video itself has no audio component, which means you can Choose your own lunar orbit soundtrack.
G / O Media can receive a commission
Using images from the NHK Kaguya orbiter In the archive, Doran de-noised, repaired, rated and rescheduled the photos used in this film.
And this isn’t Doran’s first foray into video of real-time orbits: he created something similar in 2018, just with one orbit of the earth in 90 minutes. (Granted, it’s a little more interesting than the moon video because you can pretend you’re on a plane and looking out the window.)
The orbit video was created using images captured by the International Space Station.
