Google's 3-decade interactive timelapse of the whole planet is mesmerizing


Google Timelapse: Miami, Florida

WATCH | Google released a three-decade interactive compilation of time-lapse photos of our planet, rendered as smoothly streaming videos. This is a look at Hialeah, Fla. starting in 1984.

Google's Timelapse program, part of a collaboration between Google's Earth Engine, NASA's Landsat and the European Space Agency's Sentinel-2A, combined 5 million satellite images from 5 different satellites to show how the planet has changed since 1984.

The program , revealed last week, comes with a video editor that lets you make your own videos of any location and then create multi-site tours. You can see cities grow larger, the Panama Canal expand, and the city of Fukushima, Japan get devastated by a tsunami.

Here's a look at Bangalore, India, through the eyes of the timelapse.

In another view, you can see an entire sea basically dry up.

You should expect to spend a good bit of time checking this out.
