This breathtaking panorama combines the two hemispheres of the Milky Way galaxy into one. On top, we can see the northern stars from the Canary Islands, while on bottom we can see the southern sky from Chile's Atacama desert.
Here is a minor edit to the excellent video by Stephane Guisard and Jose Francisco Salgado, posted at Nicolas Bustos channel. Visit http://eso.org for more about the European Southern Observatory.
Look up at the sky and what do you see? Well, blue, yes. And maybe a plane or a bird, but otherwise ... nothing. Or so you think. It turns out that right above you, totally invisible, is an enormous herd of animal life -- tiny bugs riding the wind currents.
Regular readers know the phenomenal work of Stéphane Guisard: he takes astrophotos showing stunning, deep views of the sky. And he’s done it once again: using a fish-eye (very wide angle) lens, he captured stunning video of the entire sky from Chile.
