Most Time Magazine covers start with a photograph or an illustration. This specific cover of Time Magazine started with a whole bunch of rotors. TIME magazine’s latest issue is a special report on the rapid explosion of drones in our culture. For the cover photo, TIME recreated its iconic logo and red border using 958 illuminated drones hovering in the sky. It’s the first-ever TIME cover captured with a camera drone.
The result was one of the biggest drone shows ever produced in the U.S. For those interested you can read all of the featured stories found in TIME’s special report on “The Drone Age”. The display was actually filmed with a cinema camera on the Astraeus-flown drone, and the cover photo was a still frame extracted from the footage.
