The Milky Way from Anza Borrego desert, a sky-stabilized timelapse

A moment of peace.

Photographer and night sky enthusiast Eric Brummel captured this incredible sky-stabilized Milky Way timelapse in August 2016 at Font's Point, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, CA.

Watch:

[I]t's the Earth that rotates, not the sky. We all *know* that's the case, but we don't really perceive it that way. I was able to use a Vixen Polarie star tracker to stabilize the sky and illustrate the Earth's rotation.
