VIDEO: See 28 Years Of Changes In Colorado Pass Right Before Your Eyes

This was described to us on Twitter as 'amazing.' It's a sentiment you'll agree with as you watch cites grow, roads move, and land change.

The video was put together by Randall Boone from the National Resource Ecology Laboratory's department of Ecosystem Science and Sustainability based at Colorado State University. It shows the evolving changes throughout Northern Colorado as seen by the eye in the sky of Landsat 5.

Highlights include watching DIA appear out of empty fields starting at the 1:45 mark and seeing Fort Collins grow up at 1:13. Pay particular attention to area reservoirs, watching them rhythmically emptying and filling again with the drought cycles.

H/T to @NREL_EcoPress for the pointing this one out to us.
