Eclipse Video!

So the sky magically cleared last night, from thick snow clouds, to crystal clear, not a cloud in the sky. It was awesome. So, up the camera went, pointing skyward. Unfortunately, I hadn't taken zoom into account. Next time I film something like this, I'll get a camera with a better zoom and taken the video feed out and into my flash camcorder. That way I could have leveled the light better, zoomed in more, etc.

Also, the video I took last night is pretty interlaced. But, for a first try, I'm happy with it. The original video is over 2 hours long and the one below is less than a minute. If you're wondering, I sped it up to 15,000 percent. Check it out!

And no, before you go turning your speakers up really loud, there isn't any audio. :-)

  1. The same thing happened here. Cloudy all day and then suddenly it was crystal clear. I had an awesome view from my apartment. Nice video, thought a better zoom would've definitely been good.
