It’s easy enough to watch ships coming and going from a busy port, but few ever get a view from the bridge of a globetrotting containership. Until now. A YouTube creator and merchant mariner late last year mounted his camera on the bridge of a containership during a journey from the Red Sea to Hong Kong, China, capturing 10 minutes of raw video footage.

The features footage containing at least 80,000 still images converted into 1.5 terabytes of video. Along the way the ship encounters storms, gorgeous sunrises, cloudless starlit nights and much more. Sit back, relax, and enjoy; the video is surprisingly hypnotizing.

If you’re short on time, take a look at the YouTube video description for quick links to the highlights of the time-lapse. The lightning storm segment near the Malacca Strait is particularly stunning.
