View this awesome time-lapse video of a meteor shower, as seen from Earth

We have already shared with you a stunning time-lapse video of space as seen from the ISS. Today we have another awesome time-lapse to show you; this time it is of a meteor shower over Joshua Tree National Park.

The following video, titled “Ascendance”, is by photographer Henry Jun Wah Leeis. In the video he covers the Perseid meteor shower that took place in August. Before you watch the video, do note the meteor shower appears about half-way through the video — the first half (about 1.5 minutes) is a time-lapse of various nature scenes. So don’t stop viewing just because you aren’t instantly bombarded by meteors. Enjoy!

    @Jeanjean: Could be, although this isn’t a Java-based component — it is Flash/HTML5.
    Thanks for helping me try to figure out what is up.

    I think (i’m pretty sure) it’s related to the fact that i’ve configured Firefox to play Java while clicking first on an(its) icon.

    Disabling add-ons does not change either.
    I changed one of my previous posts… a test with IE 8 was without problem !

    @Jeanjean: Have you tried it in a different browser? How about disabled add-ons on FF?

    @ Ashraf
    I just do it with CCleaner and there is no change.

    @Jeanjean: Have you tried clearing browser cache?

    The last version of Firefox.
    I tried in IE8 and have not had a problem.

    @fermier: I was actually serious. While the video above is awesome, it isn’t as awesome as the previous one.
    @Jeanjean: Odd. It works fine for me. What browser are you using?

  • Jeanjean

    I had to click on a blank space to see the image of the video (XP-sp3) and play it !?
    Thanks.

    I was sarcastic, myself admittedly an unpleasant character. Awesome for progs and addictive for games being notorious cliches.

    @fermier: I agree. It isn’t as stunning as the previous time-lapse from ISS.

  • fermier

    It is awesome, but not addictive.
