ATCA video

epaell, an astronomer working at/with the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) posted this wonderful time-lapse video recently:

Watch this fullscreen, and in 1080p if you've got a good monitor.

I really loved this, and it felt almost like Koyaanisqatsi in reverse to me: instead of seeing life out of balance and technology out of control as a stark contrast to nature, nature and technology intertwined and integrated in harmony here.

I particularly loved the bit starting at 0:47 — the telescopes turning towards the sun like giant flowers. That was brilliant and touching and brought a smile to my heart; I could almost feel the sunlight and the warmth and happiness it brings wash over myself, too.

The only downside is that the video ended rather abruptly. But hey! It's still great.
