8K, 360-Lunar Eclipse Timelapse Aurora Borealis

Postby sidd finch » Sat Mar 24, 2018 6:54 pm

Photographer / Videographer William Briscoe was able to capture an absolutely stunning 8K, 360 timelapse of a lunar eclipse happening during the Aurora Borealis.

The video is actually a blend of two different images captured by two different camera rigs. Briscoe had to use two rigs because different settings were needs to properly expose the moon and the Aurora Borealis.

“The difference between the settings required to properly expose the moon and the Aurora is too great to do it in a single shot,” Briscoe says. “The 360 camera was set to expose the aurora and landscape, while a second camera attached to a telephoto lens was used to time lapse the lunar eclipse itself. I combined them in post.”

Wow, makes me want to go to Alaska just for the light show! The combination of these two events in one 360 recording is incredible.

I remember being able to see the northern lights from the suburbs of Chicago when I was growing up. It wasn't often and wasn't extremely colorful but still amazingly beautiful. When we moved to Minnesota we were able to see them much more often and with more color, still not as amazing as WAYYYY up north but still very cool.

That video was really cool. I watched it a couple of times and did not even pay attention to the moon because the Aurora was sooooo cool.
