Occasionally I like to feature news of things going on around the world. We know of Japan’s 6.1 aftershock tremor that shook on 110411. We keep praying for the Japanese people. It must feel insane to never know when the ground will become stable once again–and prayerfully, those who are a part of the nuclear program are busy working on solutions to the current and any future nuclear disasters.
How does this relate to JYJ and HoMin? We all live in an interacting world–and our guys are a part of it. Life happens, as evidenced by the Japanese earthquake/tsunami. Our mancubs have shown great interest in the lives of people in the world around them–we should also. Momma Cha
FEATURE STORY: From UNITED STATES to PARIS in 2 Minutes (with Northern Lights on the side)
Jonathan Woods writes: Photographer Nate Bolt got a bleary-eyed surprise when he checked the back of his camera while shooting a time lapse of his 11-hour flight from San Francisco to Paris.
What started off as a casual art project has garnered hundreds of thousands of astonished viewers – for something Bolt couldn’t even see with his own eyes.
“I was as surprised as anybody else,” he told msnbc.com.
The aurora borealis light up the night sky on a flight from San Francisco to Paris.
During the overnight flight, the half-asleep Bolt leaned over to check his camera and saw the aurora borealis lighting up the skies on its viewfinder screen.
Although he couldn’t see the northern lights with his naked eyes, which he attributes to light inside the cabin, Bolt kept shooting. Over the course of the flight, the camera took more than 2,400 images.
Photographer Nate Bolt tells TODAY.com’s Dara Brown how he clicked pictures for 11 hours during his flight from San Francisco to Paris and captured the Northern Lights.
Update (4/11/2011 8:27pm EST): Many of our readers have brought it to our attention that the window Bolt was shooting out of would be facing south, therefore alleging that photographing the phenomena wasn’t possible. After studying the likely flight path, we discovered that flights from San Francisco International to Charles de Gaulle follow a trajectory that typically dissects Thunder bay and clips the southern tip of Greenland, meaning that a moderate display could be visible.

“They didn’t fly east across the United States. The distance would be too great. Watching the photos you see the end up over a snowy/ice area so it’s obvious the plane was flying what pilots call the Great Circle. The plane flies to the northeast and over Canada and Greenland and then over England before landing in Paris”.
