Far from starscape-dulling city lights, farmer and photographer Randy Halverson spends his time creating a new video of the spinning night sky.
Shot from his central South Dakota farm, the first video features the Milky Way, which appears to our eyes as a fuzzy band but is actually an an edge-on view of dust lit by billions of stars. Summer is the prime season for North Americans to catch the Milky Way.
Below are some more of his video collection. They’re really amazing!
