'Temporal Distortion' Video

Since I've been on the subject of time, here's a very cool video of time-lapse images of the night sky.

It looks great on an HD monitor, fullscreen if possible.

I can't blame ancient people for their awe of the Great Rift in the sky, which defied their understanding. However, we now know that the dark area of the visible Milky Way is caused by interstellar dust & material blocking the concentrated starlight.

The only time I get to see a really good view of the Milky Way is when I'm in the Pocono mountains in PA. It's one of my favorite things to sit out at night on lake, under a starry sky with a beer, & just admire the infinite cosmos.
