Capturing an earthquake on a long exposure photo
On November 1st The International Space Station was visible from New Zealand, Tim set out to capture a long-exposure shot of ISS passing. It turned out great! He noticed something strange though when he zoomed in, notice the “curls” here?
At first I thought he moved his tripod by accident or somehow caused a movement but guess what – he recorded an earthquake!
At the same moment he started taking the photos people reported about the earthquake:
And then on the GeoNet and news:
Isn’t that incredible? What a fun coincident!
