It’s Tuesday, so once again it’s “time” to “lapse” it up! (See what we did there?) Each week, we’ll share a new way of looking at this big blue planet of ours. While a photo does a great job of capturing what we see with our own eyes, a time-lapse reveals just how little the eye can see.

Built to commemorate the fourth centenary of Buenos Aires, this towering obelisk in the Plaza de la República has since become an icon of the city. The surrounding area, known as the "Punto Obelisco," has grown into a vibrant entertainment hub, filled with light and culture and modelled after New York's Times Square. Watch the bustle of Buenos Aires speed by as it stands tall in today's time-lapse.
