Time-lapses, they are so fun to watch when they are done well, and when National Geographic features one, you can bet that it’s superbly done. Well, below you can watch a fairly long, 3.5 minute, time-lapse of the milky way rising and setting over various different places.
I’m really surprised about the first 30 seconds though. The earthquake in L.A. that caused the blackout, that’s pretty interesting. I don’t remember being able to see the Milky Way from the Blackout of 2003, but then again, I wasn’t really looking for it.
