Slow Shutter Space Travel Photography


 NASA Astronaut Don Pettit has captured amazing once in a lifetime images of Earth and the stars of the universe in motion.  He is using a slow shutter technique to capture the light trails of the stars & earth as the International Space Station whizzes by overhead.  Pettit sets his camera to a 30-second shutter and snaps multiple exposures for 10-15 minutes at a time.  He then blends all of the images together to expose dreamy, futuristic frames of space travel only as it can be imagined.  Few photographers will be so lucky to have this perspective in this generation.  In the near future thought perhaps we will see more “Space Travel” photography, we can only hope so Check out more photos below.

A long way down to Earth.

The splotches of light on Earth represent the cities below.

Infinity & beyond.

A great shot showing the International Space Station in motion.

If you didn’t hear about it there was a meteor shower over Santa Barbara this past weekend.  DNA’s own Paul Vert trekked up to the mountains to capture a clearer view.  A much different perspective then Don Petit, but still very cool.
