The World, Looking out at the Moon: Video
Thank you to Annick Bureaud at OLATS for circulating this video of the world, looking out at the Moon…
In January 2010, artist Rachel Younghans asked people around the earth to take a picture of the Moon above them beginning on the evening of January 19 and ending on the evening of January 20. It was full moon and we were asked to take the picture also at a given time.
She has since released this 48-second video, in which you see the moon as it makes one full, 24-hour rotation around the earth, starting in Senegal, Africa and moving west, at one photo per minute.
She named it YAW, which means to twist about a vertical axis.
