Here’s a stunning time-lapse video made by Stéphane Guisard of the night sky at the Paranal Observatory in Chile. Do watch it at the full 1080p resolution and in fullscreen mode for the best effect. Seriously beautiful. I just wish that the night sky around here was as clear, but alas there’s simply too much light pollution here in the densely populated Netherlands.
