Mesmerizing Six-Second Timelapse Video Shows How the Earth Changed Over Six Months

Aug 22, 2014

According to NASA, no planets have "matched the dynamic complexity of our own." This video by the NASA Earth Observatory, which will take you just six seconds to watch -- unless you keep hitting refresh like we did -- showcases that dynamic complexity over the course of six months.

You see the eastern hemisphere, from January 18 to July 25, and its subtle changes in weather systems and vegetation. The best part is the clouds -- swirling, lovely, mesmerizing clouds. Good job, Earth. You're pretty awesome.
