time lapse photography of 2005 simi valley fires

Over at Boingboing (isn’t it weird how we use direction-specific terms like “over at” when talking about other websites? Is anything really “over” anywhere online? These are the things that keep me awake at night.)

Um. Anyway, I was reading Boingboing this morning, and saw this phenomenal video of the Simi Valley wildfires in 2005:


Mark at Boingboing sez it was “Shot with 3 cameras over a period of 28 hours during September 28-29th 2005. Firestorm shows a a unique look at the Simi Valley fire which consumed 25,000 acres. Look for Mars, Orion & the Moon rising in the distance…”

  1. I was working in Woodland Hills during that fire, and remember the smoke in the air and the ashes on my car and the view from the Top o’ Topanga, when I’d drive home after dark – but I was always too far away to actually see the flames, or that bright crawl of sparks across the hills. That’s beautiful and terrifying.
