Amazing Sky Videos

I present a 4-minute video (in 4K resolution) featuring time-lapses of the Milky Way taken from Alberta, Canada and from Australia, showing the motion of the sky and galactic core.

I include a still-image mosaic of the Milky Way from Aquila to Crux shot in Chile.

Locations for the time-lapses include Writing-on-Stone and Police Outpost Provincial Parks, and Banff and Jasper National Parks in Alberta. In Australia I shot from the Victoria coast and from inland in New South Wales near Coonabarabran, with some scenes from the annual OzSky Star Safari held each April.

Most scenes were shot in 2016 and 2017.

I used a SYRP Genie Mini and a Star Adventurer Mini for the panning sequences, and a TimeLapse+ View intervalometer for the day-to-night sequences. I processed all sequences through LRTimelapse to smooth transitions and flickering.

Music is by Audiomachine.

Enjoy!
