Cambiare punto di osservazione, la Terra vista da fuori

Stamattina voglio portarvi lassù, provando a cambiare prospettiva, punto d’osservazione. Guardarci da fuori ogni tanto fa bene. Il giorno e la notte sembrano delimitati non dal tempo ma solo da uno spazio, una linea di confine all’apparenza sottilissima. Le luci delle città come vene, i lampi appaiono come trasmissioni sinaptiche nel nostro cervello. Le aurore come membrane nervose che si muovono, si stringono, si dilatano, pulsano.

Un organismo vivente in piena regola.

Ecco i luoghi fotografati e come è stato realizzando questo video:

Time lapse sequences of photographs taken by the crew of expeditions 28 & 29 onboard the International Space Station from August to October,
2011, who to my knowledge shot these pictures at an altitude of around 350 km.
All credit goes to them.

HD, refurbished, smoothed, retimed, denoised, deflickered, cut, etc.
All in all I tried to keep the looks of the material as original as possible,
avoided adjusting the colors and the like, since in my opinion the original
footage itself already has an almost surreal and aestethical visual nature.
