‘Under The Namibian Sky’ Time-Lapse: 250 Hours Of Dazzling Night Exposures (VIDEO)
Captured over the course of ten cloudless nights at Tivoli Farm, Namibia, “Under the Namibian Sky” contains more than 250 hours of dazzling night exposures of the Milky Way, various celestial bodies, satellites and meteors.
The 13-minute movie, which was shot and posted to YouTube by Lorenzo Comolli and his team in late November 2011, is filled with dynamic star-scapes that show the dizzying migration of the stars across the night sky in the southern hemisphere.
You’re going to want to watch this one in high definition.
For the shoot, Comolli and his crew used Canon cameras and a variety of lenses, ranging from 8 to 20mm, at exposure times of 30 to 60 seconds.
In May, NamibRand Nature Reserve, a private reserve in southern Namibia, received approval to become an official night sky reserve.
