BABloggee Greg Smith told me about this video, which is actually quite beautiful to watch. Nice choice of music, too. Timescapes Timelapse: Learning to Fly from Tom @ Timescapes on Vimeo I used to take a lot of astrophotos when I was younger, and when I took long exposures and there was scattered light -- from the Moon, say, or a street light -- the sky would be blue, you could see trees, yet there would still be visible stars in the sky. It was eerie, and this video catches that well. See if you can spot Orion and the Andromeda galaxy in the video!
