In case you missed it: Some time-lapse footage from yesterday's solar eclipse.

There was a problem rendering this video - it may have been deleted.

In December 2014 and June 2015, as an astronomer I was lucky enough to to visit La Silla Observatory in Chile. Part of the European Southern Observatory, La Silla is home to dozens of working telescopes, including the 1.2m Swiss Telescope, on which I worked. While there I turned my camera to the skies, taking nearly 10,000 photos. This video is the result.

If you have dreams of someday traveling into space, this video might make you drool with anticipation.

European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst put together this amazing timelapse using 12,500 images taken during his six-month Blue Dot mission aboard the International Space Station.

During his time up there, he had a number of major accomplishments. According to the ESA, these included "installing ESA's furnace that can suspend and cool molten metal in mid-air, a spacewalk to maintain and improve the Space Station, and the docking of Europe's last Automated Transfer Vehicle – the largest spacecraft to supply the research centre."

Gerst would often set up cameras to take photos while he conducted his work, and you can check out his full feed of images on his Flickr page.
