As you already will know the time-lapse movies are a sequence of video accelerated, where the events suceden to a much faster speed of the normal.
To obtain films time-lapse exist diverse methods. We can record a sequence with a video camera and afterwards accelerate the film in any program of edition of video.
Another method is the catchment of images to determinate intervals of time. We go shooting photographies each true time, and when joining these images in a program of edition of video in our computer, obtain a film with the effect of “characteristic accelerated” image of the time-lapse.
Any one can realise a Time-lapse with a good camera, some knowledges of photography and a lot of, a lot of patience. But very few can realise a Time-lapse as the one who leave you to continuation.
This tipe-lapse is realised from the International Space Station and as it is can imagine the spectacular result. Impressive the storms seen from a prespectiva totally different… and the tranquility and calm that wraps to our planet seen from the space.
