Our admiration for NASA‘s excellent Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD to the cool kids) is on record. We start every day with a look at the latest wonderful image on the site, and every now and then we decide to share one that we particularly enjoy. This time-lapse footage of the night sky over the Magellan Telescopes in Chile is just such an instance. Keep an eye out for the flashes across the screen from time to time – those are satellites, which the 12-year-old SF fan inside thinks is just the coolest thing ever.
Enjoy! And if you want to see more, the APOD site has a Random APOD Generator you can visit, if you’re prepared to lose hours of your life.
