Time-Lapse Video: Incredible Northern And Southern Skies

Alex Cherney is a hobbyist astronomer and yet he creates some of the most professional-looking time-lapse videos of Australian landscapes and skies.

For this video Cherney visited the principal Australian observatory at Siding Spring, NSW and the observatory on the island of LaPalma in the Canary Islands, Spain.

The two observatories are located at similar latitudes in the Southern and Northern hemispheres resulting in an awe-inspiring video that won the animated sequences "aesthetic" category at this year's David Malin Astrophotography awards.
