It’s good to take a step back for once and spend some time just looking up at the night sky and staring in awe of how beautiful each passing second is. In a two-hour session of stargazing and pondering, Bates photographer Theophil Syslo captures a stunning timelapse video of the sky at night over Maine.

All the while, the sky appears to rotate, due to the Earth’s rotation. (The camera itself is moving and rotating, too, thanks to Syslo’s three-axis setup.) The 22-second video comprises hundreds of still images taken 40 seconds apart. The night images were taken with a 30-second exposure to effectively capture starlight.
