When the electrons drop back to a lower energy state, they release a photon: light. This process creates the beautiful aurora or Northern lights. You can't see them very often because they are visible from late September to early April anywhere from 6 pm to 6 am. There also needs to be solar flares on the sun or solar wind. Fascinating!

Time Lapse Shows The Making Of A Guitar In Only 6 Minutes

Have you ever felt like there are things in this world that are so mesmerizing that you can’t fathom the notion of them originating from the Earth? It doesn’t have to be anything scientific, we’re talking about everyday objects that we’ve grown so used to, but we can not explain the way they work for the life of us. One such object is a musical instrument. There is something so captivating about the way such a tiny thing can cause such a grand sound, but how is it made? How can the whoosh of air coming through your lips transform in the tube of the flute to create a high pitched tone? How can a strum of your fingers create the greatest melodies known to man? It all boils down to sound waves. Basically, by using the instrument, we create vibrations that our ears later perceive as sound. It’s nothing but physics and it takes a bit of genius to be able to gather and coordinate this vibrations in order to create those mesmerizing melodies. Creating instruments is an art in itself. It takes talent and understanding of how vibrations work in order to create such a masterpiece. This time lapse shows us how a guitar is handmade in only six minutes. It is easier these days to let machines create these instruments, but it is humbling to know that there are people who still want to maintain this art by practicing it themselves, the same thing ancestors before them had done for centuries.

This Amazing Timelapse Video Shows The Construction Of Shanghai Tower

Towering above this city of 24 million people at 2,073 feet. the Shanghai Tower is the tallest building in China and 2nd tallest in the world, only surpassed by the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Its 128 stories are divided into 9 vertical zones, including retail at the base, offices in the middle, and hotels and observation decks at the top. The super-tall skyscraper features a double-decker elevator that offers the longest single elevator journey in the world at 1,900 feet in under a minute. Designed by international design firm Gensler and owned by the Shanghai city government, it is the tallest of the world's first triple-adjacent super-tall buildings in Pudong, the other two being the Jin Mao Tower and the Shanghai World Financial Centre. Its tiered construction, designed for high energy efficiency, provides nine separate zones divided between office, retail and leisure use. Construction work on the tower began in November 2008 and topped out on 3 August 2013. The exterior was completed in summer 2015, and work was considered complete in September 2015. Although the building was originally scheduled to open to the public in November 2014, the actual public-use date slipped considerably. The observation deck was opened to visitors in July 2016. From April 26, 2017 onwards, the sightseeing deck on the 118th floor is open to the public. The Shanghai Tower incorporates numerous green architecture elements; its owners received certifications from the China Green Building Committee and the U.S. Green Building Council for the building's sustainable design. In 2013, a Gensler spokesman described the tower as "the greenest super high-rise building on earth at this point in time". The building is designed to capture rainwater for internal use, and to recycle a portion of its wastewater.

Snow Artist Makes The Most Astonishing Snow Drawings 1m16s

Snow Artist Makes The Most Astonishing Snow Drawings

Have you ever heard of the world’s first and most famous "Snow Artist"? Enjoy this opportunity to meet the breathtaking artist Simon Beck. Driven by super-human forces and undaunted by the powers of nature, he trudges across sand or through knee-high snow to create massive geometric drawings. Simon Beck produces about 30 snow drawings every winter in the northern hemisphere, mostly in the Alps. He started 10 years ago doing it for fun and now it is his main occupation. ‘When you have a blank piece of paper you draw on it,’ he says. ‘So drawing on a blank snowfall seemed like a natural thing to do.’ In this video, we have the amazing chance to see his talent in which he shares this time lapse with us that is sure to blow your mind. He creates a phenomenal drawing in the snow using a gigantic piece of land. That's so amazing! He makes his drawings using only a compass and by counting paces. Simon wears snowshoes, and by running in them makes a path. He cannot step outside the path since this will disturb the fresh snow. What an incredible talent! He loves doing mathematical shapes and he has favorite shapes too. His favorite are: Koch snowflake, Sierpinski triangle and Mandelbrot set. Beck takes pictures of all his artworks and earns his living by selling high-resolution copies of the photographs. We salute you Mr. Beck because you made something so simple and turned it into a sophisticated and amazing art!

Students In Finland Made A Massive Snow Photography Display1m27s

Students In Finland Made A Massive Snow Photography Display

When snow falls, creativity takes over. Even though the white snow brings cold, it can have its beautiful side. Most of us know how to make a snowman out of the accumulated white cover, but there are some people that are such professionals and know how to use every single snowflake and turn it into an astonishing sculpture. In the middle of January 2015, students from the Kuusamo college at the University of Lapland in North Finland decided to use their skills and go beyond their boundaries. Using their imagination, they created a massive snow photography display. 30 tons of snow and one ton of ice were needed for this creation of art to get its final look. It took five days of hard work, tons of hot cups of tea and maybe even some exercise to warm their hands and bodies so they can stay longer on the freezing temperatures. At the end all of this was totally worth it. The final result will leave you amazed - a long snowy line where nine frozen photographs are being displayed and sculpture installations are filling the university yard. At night time, all of this looks even more beautiful. As you can see in this one-minute time lapse video, these students needed excavators for the snow, scaffolding to make the massive shapes and of course, crafty hands. By doing this big winter photography display they proved themselves in front of their professors and the rest of the world. We give them a well deserved A+! Good job you guys!

Jaw-Dropping Milky Way Timelapse Is Something To Behold1m09s

Jaw-Dropping Milky Way Timelapse Is Something To Behold

Now, whatever you are doing at this moment is not as nearly important. Drop it down, make sure you put this amazing video of the Milky Way on full screen and relax in your chair for at least few minutes. Just as the bright city lights are safely left far away, there, in the great outdoors, the Milky Way begins to become plainly visible up above. The forest is getting softly covered by the pitch-black night sky above and after setting of the sun the sky slowly shows this surreal landscape. You just need to peer deep into the glowing stars, seemingly scattered on this night playground above the head, and take a magical journey of your own imagination. It almost looks outlandish, just like a painting. Meanwhile, shooting stars whiz by, creating the feeling that you are floating in space. The video shown at the top of this page may not be action-packed or brimming with laughter, but it is amazing in its own way. The reason for this is very simple: this is the actual image our pre-industrial ancestors had the privilege to see every night, and all they had to do is raise their heads to the night sky. Nowadays, this is extremely rare to see, except if you are ready to go away in remote areas lacking urban lighting and waiting for a moonless night. So, if you have the chance to do so, pack your bags, take a soft duvet and find the perfect spot. Do not attempt to shoot a stop motion video, just allow yourself to actually experience the moment for yourselves. It is something worth experiencing!

Sled Dog Team Rests Under Explosion of Northern Lights1m39s

Sled Dog Team Rests Under Explosion of Northern Lights

In the early hours of February 17, 2016, musher Laura Neese entered the Braeburn, Yukon checkpoint during the Yukon Quest Sled Dog Race. She then set about the task of caring for her team under a spectacular display of northern lights, or aurora. The Yukon Quest Sled Dog Race is a 1,000 mile race which spans northern areas of Alaska and Canada's Yukon Territory. On even years, as in 2016, the race starts in Fairbanks, Alaska and heads east into Canada. Mushers race by dog team from checkpoint to checkpoint, stopping to rest, care for their animals, and care for themselves and their equipment. Sometimes the teams stop at designated checkpoints - other times, they will pull off the trail and find a good spot to take a break. At designated checkpoints such as Braeburn, mushers will "check in" with a checker who logs their time, and also makes sure they have all their required equipment. This required equipment includes survival gear such as an ax and arctic sleeping bag for the musher. For the dogs, they are required to have booties for each member of the dog team, and enough food in case they have to stop and camp somewhere other than a checkpoint. After this check in, the mushers parks their team, lays out straw for each of the dogs for a nice warm bed, then begins cooking a hot meal for the dogs. While the dogs are resting, the musher and a veterinarian go about the task of checking each dog to make sure it is healthy and well. The musher will rub joints and apply cream to feet to keep them healthy. The veterinarian will ensure the team is well, and note this in a log book which must be kept with the musher at all times. This ensures that veterinarians at each checkpoint see the condition of the animals, and spot any problems. In this video, you will see all of this. You will see the musher, Laura Neese (in dark clothing), caring for her team. The persons in red and blue are part of the veterinarian team, checking the log book and the dogs. You can see the cooker in the foreground, fire blazing as she is preparing a hot meal for her dogs who are resting on their straw beds. It was a very cold night, about -30F below zero. Just before Laura and her team arrived at the checkpoint, there was a faint aurora display. Almost on queue as she was settling them in for their rest, the sky exploded with movement and color. Braeburn, Yukon is on the remote Klondike Highway, just south of the arctic circle and often receives spectacular aurora displays. The light you see in the center of the sky is actually the moon, rising up as the display raged on for several hours. What an amazing display of nature's beauty!

Veterinarian Creates A Realistic Dog-O-Lantern Pumpkin Carving1m30s

Veterinarian Creates A Realistic Dog-O-Lantern Pumpkin Carving

Jack-o-lantern is a carved pumpkin or turnip lantern, associated with the holiday of Halloween. The top of the pumpkin is cut off to form a lid, the inside flesh is scooped out, and an image, usually a monstrous or comical face, is carved out of the rind to expose the hollow interior. To create the lantern effect, a light source, traditionally a flame such as a candle or tea light, is placed within before the lid is closed. It is common to see jack-o'-lanterns on doorsteps and used as decorations prior to and on Halloween. This creative veterinarian Andy Manoloff from Indiana posted a fantastic time lapse video that features him creating a realistic dog pumpkin carving, conveniently calling it “Dog-O-Lantern,” of his beloved Pomeranian dog named Sophie.
