8 Years Of Saturn

This video was put together by Nahum Chazarra, using eight years of photos sent back to us by the Cassini spacecraft, which has produced some extraordinary pictures of the very prettiest thing he have floating around our celestial back yards. I've lost count of how many Cassini shots have become my desktop backgrounds. At least two at the moment.

What I like most about this video is that it uses only still shots, played together like a flip book. The resulting effect reminds me of historical footage from the turn of the last century, when cameras were new and silent, and rough and joggy. It looks old and frontierish, and it is amazing. Do yourself a favour: watch all five minutes of it, and feel inspired for the rest of the day.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
