Stunning time-lapse video of the Milky Way, aurora borealis, and lightening


Photographer Randy Halverson uses time-lapse video to help us witness lightening and aurora borealis come alive in ways we can’t always appreciate in real-time. Another amazing benefit to this video is seeing and sensing the earth’s rotation as the Milky Way is shown moving across the night sky. We set the video to start at 00:40, skipping the intro credits.
