24 Sunsets in 24 Time Zones Captured in an Eight-hour Flight

The premise of this stunt is intriguing. Photographer Simon Roberts and pilot Jonathan Nicol took photographs of the sunset in every time zone for a project called Chasing Horizons. The purpose was to create an interesting ad for Citizen watches.  

Over the course of 8 hours they literally chased the sun around the globe, staying in ‘the same moment in time’ and letting the Earth spin under them while Roberts captured all 24 sunsets along the way… or rather captured the sun trying to set on them while they fought back with technology and sheer force of will.

The ad turned out okay, and the photographs, well, they aren’t the greatest sunset photographs, but they were in 24 different time zones. The question is, how did they chase the sun around the globe through every time zone in only eight hours? If you think about it, you can figure out the answer before you read the article that explains it at PetaPixel. -via mental_floss
