Northern Sky from Yellowpoint
Time lapse photography reduces a 12.5 hour dusk to dawn period into a minute and 20 seconds. Look for the Big Dipper early and Cassiopia coming down on the left later. Then Lyra and Cygnus can be seen before a gorgeous dawn ends the night. The sequence was done on the night of February 17-18, 2010 from Yellow Point , Vancouver Island while the Vancouver Olympics were on. The lights on the lower right are from the Olympic site. Following the sequence are star trail images that were made from the same images as the video.
