„Der Oheim, welcher neben mir saß“

„mürrisch und malkontent wie er war, hatte er als Major seinen Abschied genommen, und nun machte er in einem mir unbekannten Raum des Schlosses alchymistische Versuche, war auch, wie ich die Diener sagen hörte, mit einem Stockhause in Verbindung, von wo man ihm ein- oder zweimal jährlich Leichen zusandte, mit denen er sich Tage und Nächte einschloß und die er zerschnitt und auf eine geheimnisvolle Art zubereitete, so daß sie der Verwesung widerstanden.“

Video: Earth | Time Lapse View from Space, Fly Over | NASA, ISS


Time lapse sequences of photographs taken by the crew of expeditions
28 & 29 onboard the International Space Station from August to October,
2011, who to my knowledge shot these pictures at an altitude of around 350 km.
All credit goes to them. I intend to upload a FullHD-version presently.

HD, refurbished, smoothed, retimed, denoised, deflickered, cut, etc.
All in all I tried to keep the looks of the material as original as possible,
avoided adjusting the colors and the like, since in my opinion the original
footage itself already has an almost surreal and aestethical visual nature.
