The night sky seems unchanging to the naked eye, but beauty is hidden beyond the limits of unaided human perception.

As Earth rotates, the sky moves, revealing astronomical events that only time-lapse photography – a series of exposures lasting for minutes apiece – can truly capture.

“There are so many things you don’t normally see that you can with time-lapse,” said photographer Randy Halverson, who created the video above.

Halverson’s work even attracted the attention of Bear McCreary, a composer who wrote the music for TV shows Battlestar GalacticaEureka and The Walking Dead. He scored Halverson’s for fun. Dim the lights, crank up the volume and watch this video to watch the world go round!
