First Log: Original description and mixed thoughts.
I want make a moving (1050mph minimum) time lapse video of a sunset at ground level, but fireing rockets at high speeds over populated areas inside controlled airspace is kind of illegal. This could be faked by having cameras set up in a straight line, evenly distributed over a long distance, but impossible for one person.
This will require thousands of volunteer photographers. Anyone interested?
The long boring confession: I have been doing photography for a very very long time. I love watching the sunrise and sunset, even more than robots. One day I was traveling west between 300-400mph (not exact, I was not paying attention at the time), and staring at a beautiful sunset unfolding through my window. Because I was chasing the sun on the horizon, I thought this will be the longest sunset I have seen. This is not a desired thing among most humans, because I have only encountered a handful of people with enough patience to sit through an entire sunset, let alone a sunrise. I wondered how fast I would need to go to make it last indefinitely.
Need to set up volunteer map:
Got four already! I am looking for a straight line, but will take what I can get.
Need to set up equipment and video requirements:
Orientation: It would be nice if everyone had the same camera on the same settings, but I think that would be impossible.
