"The Light of Stars" is a stunning time lapse video from astrovideographer Daniel Lopez. In the video he treats us to several inspiring videos of the night sky and also shows us how he used sliders and cranes to move the cameras themselves, giving the imagery a three-dimensional feel.
The video is taken on the Canary Islands of Spain over a two month period and shows some scenes that include sunset shadows approaching the Observatorio del Tiede, the Milky Way moving as the sky rotates, Venus and Jupiter, a red colored moon that rises through layers of atmospheric refraction and other things like a spider in a web moving in front of the camera. The end of the video shows the Belt of Venus descending on Mt. Teide as the morning sun rises.
All the scenes were recorded at night with the only light being that of the moon and a few foci.
