TimePoints (The Timelapse)

Timelapse from the evening after watching the Transit of Venus.


Watch the scene darken as the sun sets, and then lighten again as the moon rises.


Accompanied by music From "Chilly Boy" used under Creative Commons. This tune is called "Ivory".

Chilly Boy's work can be found at


This is an extension of the experimental star trail technique I showed earlier.


Some things to look for:

A. See if you can spot the constellation Cassiopea (hint it rises)

B. There are 3 Irridium flares - can you find them all?

C. The sunset glow is to the far left, so what is that orange glow near the center of the image?
