This is an astronomical time lapse of the night sky over the 2010 Queensland Astrofest at Camp Duckadang in Linville, Queensland, Australia on 6-7 August 2010. The image is shifted so the horizon is at the bottom of the field (portrait camera orientation). The time lapse is taken with a 15mm fisheye lens and Canon EOS-5D camera. The video starts at nightfall facing South with the galactic core of the Milky Way directly overhead moving to the West with Earth’s rotation. Small and Large Magellanic Clouds rise from the East, and Orion rises shortly before dawn.
Music is “Skyscape” by Erik Wollo from his 2007 album, “Elevations.”
