We are fortunate to have a western view out our only window here at HI-SEAS. This gives us the opportunity to view spectacular sunsets on simulated Mars. The slopes of Mauna Loa are desolate lava fields as far as the eye can see, and although the view is always the same, it never gets boring.
To capture the splendour of a Martian sunset, I set up my Olympus OM-D EM-5 with a Triggertrap Mobile connected to an iPad to capture a high-resolution image every half a second. The resulting 7,200 images were composed into a time-lapse video with GoPro Studio, and the resulting movie was sped up 120% with iMovie to make it the same length as the song Calm Down by Souvs.
Here’s the final result, I hope you like it as much as I do:
