HS3 Global Hawk Camera Timelapse

NASA released a time-lapse video that highlights three different cameras aboard NASA's remotely piloted Global Hawk aircraft No. 872 as it investigated two tropical systems in the Atlantic Ocean in early September 2014.

The 2 minute and 40 second time lapse was created by Dave Fratello, HS3 payload manager of the NASA Global Hawk project at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California.

The video highlights the imaging from the daylight, HDVis or high-definition Visualization camera and low light camera. The video begins using the daylight camera and shows the Global Hawk taking off from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility runway in Virginia.
