The 24 HOUR PLAYS DUBLIN is an annual event that raises much needed funds for Dublin Youth Theatre. Over 24 hours, 50 artists and theatre makers come together to write, rehearse and perform six brand new short plays. It’s a riot, and makes for a very unique night out. The event takes place on February 1st at the Abbey Theatre for one night only.

Of this stunning, motion-controlled timelapse tour of European landmarks by night, filmmaker Luke Shepard sez:

Nightvision is a celebration of the brilliance and diversity of architecture found across Europe. Over the course of three months I journeyed with a friend through 36 cities in 21 countries with the ambition of capturing some of the greatest European structures in a new and unique way.

Full screen HD recommended.

Almost 40 years to the day after the Apollo 17 crew snapped the famed “blue marble” image of Earth floating in space on December 7, 1972, Nasa has unveiled “black marble” views of the planet by night. The cloud-free pictures, taken with a high-resolution visible and infrared imager aboard a NASA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellite, capture the night lights of Earth in unprecedented detail.
