The World At Night: Innsbruck

Bad Astronomy tipped me off to a mesmerizing time lapse video of Innsbruck, Austria, by Christoph Malin, who spent 8 months there and took 35,000 photos.

Hard to believe The Milky Way could be that clearly visible from just outside the city. It’s spectacular, and watch for meteors paraboling through. Part of a larger effort called, “The World At Night.” From their web site:

The World At Night (TWAN) is an international effort to present stunning nightscape photos and time-lapse videos of the world’s landmarks against celestial attractions. The eternally peaceful night sky looks the same above symbols of all nations and regions, attesting to the truly unified nature of Earth as a planet rather than an amalgam of human-designated territories.
