If you can recall, about two months ago, I posted a few awesome time-lapse videos by Australian cinematographer Alex Cherney. Since then, he’s been working on another project called “Epic Stargaze”, and is now done with the video. For the fifth year, the Astronomical Society of Albury Woodonga organized a spectacular star party – Border Stargaze. This year’s stargaze was exceptional in many ways including clear weather for the whole week.
Everyone was busy observing the sky with telescopes small and large at night and Alex had two cameras clicking away. The result is this three minute (his longest yet!) time-lapse video. There are four galaxies – The Milky Way, Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, Andromeda Galaxy and maнy many stars. The changing sky colour from natural Oxygen glow in the upper atmosphere is quite startling.
