Milky Way

This is the most amazing time-lapse video of the entire sky as seen from Ft. Davis, TX, during the Texas Star Party. TSP is an amazing 700+ attendee star party in the darkest location in the 48 states that I went to in 2001 and saw the most amazing Milky Way imaginable. They make jokes about people mistaking it for a storm cloud coming up over the horizon, and I laughed, until it happened to me a few days in when I lost track of time. You can actually see your shadow by it. Watch the video and be amazed.
