Three years in the making, this amazing time lapse video of the night sky is by Jeffrey Sullivan, and is really, really beautiful. It's called While the Sun Was Sleeping. Make sure you set it to HD and make it full screen.

The song (which I really like) is called "While You Were Sleeping"

by Life Audience. If some of the footage seems familiar, it may be because I've featured some of it on this blog before, like the Perseid meteor shower

, and the setting lunar eclipse behind the tower

(which is frakkin' incredible). It's videos like this why I follow so many photographers and astrophotographers on Google+. It's a haven for amazing imagery.
