I just got back from a conference that targeted creative professionals who do work in the government space. I had previously worked with the folks behind Airman magazine… a very cool digital magazine that’s available for free. It’s built using Adobe’s Digital Publishing platform. You can get the free magazine here. Be sure to pull it down to see how the timelapse was integrated into the digital layout (it’s very well done).

The group behind the magazine produced a great timelapse to accompany the story. The video features the Maui Space Surveillance Complex is located on Mount Haleakala, a dormant volcano on the island of Maui in Hawaii. Here they track man-made objects orbiting the Earth. You can get the whole story here.

The complex is located 10,000 feet above sea level on top of Haleakala, a dormant volcano on the island, that is also considered one of the best places on Earth to view space from. This time lapse sequence was captured over a three-day period by a team from Airman magazine, the U.S. Air Force’s official publication.
