12. Actually LSD is the best drug for stargazing.

Look long enough and you will see UFOs.

4. Flat, yes, but seems to tilt rather badly at times.

Like the deck of a ship, or the floor of a bar at 2am.

3. Holy mackerel

That's astounding. When you think that there's a complete rotation every 24 hours and how fast a plane flying around the earth would have to go to achieve that, it's totally awesome to see the earth doing the work. I am stunned.

6. YouTube version:



Although the Earth rotates below the sky, aerial time-lapse videos often have the perspective of a celestial scene rushing above the ground. In this brief video by Aryeh Nirenberg, the Milky Way becomes completely stationary, highlighting specifically the Earth’s rotation. Nirenberg recorded the time-lapse with a Sony a7SII with the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 lens while using an equatorial tracking mount over a period of three hours. You can see more of his starscapes on Instagram and Youtube. (via Kottke)

9. Fantastic! Very clever idea!

I love the idea of putting the camera on an Equatorial telescope mount.

11. Don't worry. Climate deniers have already asked Trump to stop the Milky Way from moving.

I guess we're all surfing on the third stone from the sun.
