-- The wait for the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century is finally over, and a tsunami of "blood moon" photographs is taking over social media. However, one photograph-turned-Plotagraph
is turning today's historic blood moon into an Instagram star. A never seen before photo effect has captured the full eclipse in a never ending cycle. The result is stunning. Instagram surfers are stopped in their tracks, gazing at the hypnotizing Plotagraph.
How can a single, still photo move like a high speed lunar eclipse? The unique motion effect was created in the disruptive suite of apps called Plotaverse. It is a suite of dynamic apps, listed in this year's MarketWatch "Top Innovations and Product Introductions."
The fluently looping motion effect is called a "Plotagraph"
and brings any single, still photo back to life within minutes. In fact, Plotaverse is so convenient to use that Cape Canaveral Airforce Station posted SpacePhotographer Erik Kuna's Plotagraph on their Instagram page, also seen in World Russia's Laraza news. WeReportSpace co-founder, Michael Seely, tweeted a viral Plotagraph of the AtlasV rocket launch at Cape Canaveral, Florida in March. Mohamed Qasem in Kuwait went a step further, tweeting a viral 'How To Create a Space Plotagraph'
, and was responded by a number of mind bending fake-or-real Plotagraphs. A Plotagraph of rotating stars, posted by GoPro garnered nearly a half million views
. The small team of the Plotaverse startup also noticed a "rolling moon"
trend, often posted by social media influencers.
Plotaverse now offers a 7 day free trial, making it easy to turn any snapshot into an internet sensation. To start creating Plotagraphs, the software can be downloaded for free at plotaverseapps.com
