Solar Eclipse Time Lapse – Sidney NE 8/21/2017

Our first attempt at a time lapse video.  Form last summer’s solar eclipse in the USA.  Camera: GoPro Hero 5  mounted on a base of a light standard.  We were in a 99% obscuration area, but did not get as dark as we expected.  It did get very cold at the peak of the eclipse, and the wind died down.

Many lessons learned on both the taking and processing of the time lapse.  This was taken over a 2 1/2 hour period, wit images every 10 seconds.  Then it was imported at 24 frames per second.
