The Milky Way in Time-Lapse Video

This hum­bling footage of the Milky Way was filmed on Mau­na Kea in Hawaii, the same loca­tion that recent­ly gave us footage of stars orbit­ing a black hole. This is, of course, not a coin­ci­dence. Mau­na Kea hosts the world’s largest obser­va­to­ry for opti­cal, infrared, and sub­mil­lime­ter astron­o­my. Thanks Robert for send­ing this our way.
