Time-lapse Video Captures May 2012 Solar Eclipse [Video]

If you missed the solar eclipse a few days back, this short time-lapse video will replay the eclipse in under two minutes for your viewing pleasure.

Courtesy of photographer Cory Poole, the images were created by shooting through 700 shots through a telescope lense and blending them together into a time lapse video.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Very boring when watched on video, actually. Another one of nature’s “you had to be there” to really appreciate it.

    Great video for those who couldn’t be there. We can still appreciate it. Thank you!

    I can’t EVEN imagine being ‘bored’ by this – it’s a teaching moment regardless of the fact that it was time-lapse and I wasn’t ‘there’ – it’s not like you can look directly at it and see it anyway, unless you planned to burn your eyes out! Great job, Cory Poole! Thanks!
