The polar panorama effect turns your wide-angle photos into marvellous miniature planets, and we’ve seen nothing as eye-catching as this “little planet” created by Dubai Film.

The Dubai International Airport (IATA location identifier: DXB) is the third busiest airport in the world with over 27 million travellers having used it this year. This mesmerising time-lapse video uses the 88,000 photographs that were captured over a period of 30 hours. The video centres on the DXB control tower as over 1,000 planes land and take off around it. You’ll notice that Terminal 3 serves as the hour hand of a clock and does a full rotation of 24 hours.

The video is shot in glorious 4K and if you like your singers Irish and from the 90s, you’re in for a double treat. You should definitely watch it in HD and in fullscreen.
