That said, I ran across this video which I thought was rather fascinating. It is a compilation of over 80,000 time-lapsed photos taken over the course of 30 days that shows a cargo ship's traveling from Sri Lanka to Singapore to Hong Kong and the oceans it crosses in between.
I particularly enjoyed the scenes of the sky at night way out on the open ocean away from all land and lights that pollute the night sky. There is nothing more spectacular than seeing the milky way out on a ship thousands of miles from anywhere. It truly does make one feel like such an infinitesimally small part in God's amazingly beautiful tapestry of creation as you see the night sky with the myriad stars He breathed into being while feeling the ever-so-gentle rocking of the ship as it momentarily parts the ocean waves to allow one to traverse across its vastness. It truly is an experience like no other.
If you ever have the opportunity to travel on the open ocean on a ship, I would highly recommend that you take advantage of it at least one time in your life. And DO sit out on the deck at night and look up at the sky. You will be changed at least a little bit by having done so!
