360 Degree Night Sky Time-Lapse From Arches National Park, Utah
This incredible 360 video shot in the Arches National Park without any light pollution allows us to witness the night sky live in action, seeing shooting stars and orbits like never before. What is super amazing about time-lapse video is the ability for us to see beyond what we perceive as time. Once again, we are reminded the planet which we call home is not really still, but rather we are cosmic beings traveling close to the speed of light along with the rest of the star systems.

We thank the excellent work done by professional 360 nocturnal time-lapse photographer Vincent Brady, producing this fascinating 360 video with 4 Canon t2i's with 8mm Rokinon fisheye lenses.
“Observing the night sky in motion over Arches National Park is an experience I will never forget. Hiking through a giant sandcastle on an ancient evaporated seabed in Utah under the light of stars that traveled extraordinary distances I found my destinations. The stars streaked over the 65 foot freestanding Delicate Arch as the Milky Way Galaxy rose opposite direction of Landscape Arch's 290 foot span. I found peaceful isolation under the night sky with the iconic natural structures that are normally surrounded with visitors from all over the planet.”
“Cameras in sync captured the experience as stars perceived to move counterclockwise around the North Star, rise in the east, break to the south, and set in the west. The time of shooting for 3 hours at each location was short and precious when contemplating how it was sculpted with a little erosion each year over hundreds of millions of years. It's a location that's special and unique to me in our Milky Way Galaxy, which spans around 150,000 light years, with as many as a trillion stars, and perhaps over 100 billion planets.
