Time-lapse video of the skies over Chile’s Atacama Desert

MEANWHILE… in Chile’s Atacama Desert Babak Tafreshi is watching the skies and recording it in a time-lapse video:

Walking on the desert near Paranal between the scattered stones and boulders on the pale red dust feels like being on Mars, but under the Earth sky. One of the most astonishing experiences under such a starry sky is the view of the Milky Way. In several scenes of the film, the setting arc of the Milky Way is captured over the cloud-covered Pacific coastline.
