Awe-Inspiring 4K Video Shows The Rotation Of The Earth In Relation To The Milky Way

An amazing video is making the rounds of the Internet, demonstrating how the Earth rotates in relation to The Milky Way galaxy. The entire video was filmed in a timelapse format to spectacular effect.

Filmed by Aryeh Nirenberg, this video shows us a new view of the night sky we know so well. Here the sky stays stationary and the planet below us moves in a smooth, circular motion that is mesmerizing.

The photographer describes the video as: “A timelapse of the Milky Way that was recorded using an equatorial tracking mount over a period of around 3 hours to show Earth’s rotation relative to the Milky Way.”
