Here's your weekly time-lapse video showing a fascinating natural event. Hat-tip to WordWeaverLynn for the original link, and Wired Science for the article which brought them all to our attention.

Corn Growing, created by mindlapse.
Time lapse sequence shot using Pentax K110D and Harbortronics DigiSnap 2100 set to take a frame each 29 minutes 45 seconds. The time lapse spans 10 days. Two 90 watt compact floresecent lights where used for both the camera shooting light and the grow lights. The lights were on for 24 hours. Check out the interesting mold growing on the kernels, it did not seem to bother the corn. Amazing how fast the corn grew - for scale, the pot in the last part of the video is 5 inch. Music by Tony Rice Monroe's Hornpipe (The Bluegrass Guitar Collection).
