Check out these beautiful time lapse movies of the nighttime sky: The Sky in Motion – Movies – Digital Images of the Sky. The quality of the photography is superb, so the movies are like butter. Like dark starry butter smeared all over the sky. Okay, there’s no such thing as dark starry butter, but if there were, it would be like that.
Be sure and click on the “playlist” link hiding on the left side of the page. Then you’ll be able to see some other movies like drowning in the clouds.
