i know that we will always be but time pass fast and slow

The Playing With Time project shows you ordinary events at extraordinarily fast or slow speeds... landscapes and eyeblinks and pregnancies and explosions. I particularly like the ones where you can choose from a number of time scales: a second, a minute, and hour, a day, a month, a year... some of them even go further using simulations. There are also links to other cool sites, such as António Cidadão's time-lapse astronomical animations, one of which is shown below.
