Temporal Distortion Time-Lapse [Video]

As usual, be sure to put the video in full screen mode after hitting the play button. Enjoy!

What you see is real, but you can’t see it this way with the naked eye. It is the result of 20-30 second exposures, edited together over many hours to produce the timelapse. This allows you to see the Milky Way, Aurora and other Phenonmena, in a way you wouldn’t normally see them.

In the opening “Dakotalapse” title shot, you see bands of red and green moving across the sky. After asking several Astronomers, they are possible nonleticulent clouds, airglow or faint Aurora. I never got a definite answer to what it is. You can also see the red and green bands in other shots.

  1. "What you see is real, but you can’t see it this way with the naked eye."

    Excuse me? Maybe in the city where all you geeky kids live. LOL In the country . . in the deserts and mountains, you can see that easy. Just need to get far enough out that there's no house lights or city glows. It's one of the reasons that in two weeks I'm leaving the west coast and going back to rural Colorado. Tired of only seeing a few dozen stars at night.

  2. This is beautiful.. sad here where I live there's so much light pollution. Where a friend of mine lives it's a little better but there are still a few street lights here and there. There are so many shooting stars in the video it makes me wonder why I never see any.. probably just cause I can't SEE them.
