Aurora borealis from a plane: U.S. to Paris time lapse (VIDEO)

Beep Show, an art collaboration of Nate Bolt and Kate Nartker, have time-lapsed everything from unloading a truck to camping in the Everglades. Now they’ve squeezed an entire plane trip from San Francisco to Paris into two minutes of awesomeness because, if you can't sleep on planes, why not do something constructive beside gulping mini bottles of wine? As the jet cruises into nightfall you can even see the aurora borealis come out and light up the sky with its strange emerald glow. Reports one the photographers: “Thanks to my neighbors for not minding an SLR click every 2 to 30 seconds for 11 hours….”
