Time Lapse Study of the Day: Gemenids Meteor Shower Over Death Valley
Back in December 2012, Gavin Heffernan ofSunchaser Pictures and his friends traveled to Death Valley, CA to watch the Geminid Meteor Shower Peak unravel. Using 25-second-long exposures on digital SLR cameras, the group compiled the images into a time-lapse video featuring some stray planets (seen at 1:15 and 2:15) and even an unidentified flying object (seen at 1:30). Hat tip to Boing Boing.

A Beautiful Walkable Map for Berlin’s 775th Anniversary
Though the exhibit is no longer on display, many visitors shared their photographs on Instagram. See more photos of the walkable map on the Schlossplatz location page!
In 2012, Berlin celebrated its 775th anniversary. Among the many festivities, several large open-air exhibitions were constructed, including a beautiful walkable map of Berlin, called City of Diversity, placed in front of the largest church in the city.
The walkable map was built as a celebration of Berlin’s many years of immigration history and diversity. It was constructed by a group of artists using a 1:775 scale and 274 stencils, featuring giant colored pins with fascinating explorable facts and stories about migration to Berlin on them. Each colored pin explored a different current or historic topic of diversity in the city, ranging from religion and politics to music and culture.
