30 days at sea: 10-minute time-lapse follows a cargo ship from the Red Sea to Hong Kong

From Aeon: "Assembled from 80,000 photographs taken over the course of a month, this video traces a cargo ship's path from the Red Sea to Hong Kong as it makes stops and captures scenes of storms, sunrises, and squid boats along the way. With constellations swirling over the horizon's line and oceans passing in a flash, the time-lapse is a powerful reminder of human smallness, both in the scope of our planet and in the cosmos."

Video by Jeffrey Tsang.
