This Timelapse Captures 24 Hours of Earth’s Rotation by Stabilizing the Sky


Astrophotographer Bartosz Wojczyński created this mesmerizing timelapse that shows the Earth rotating over the course of 24 hours by using the heavens as the point of reference rather than the landscape.

The Polish photographer was shooting in Tivoli, Namibia, where he set up a Nikon D810 and Irix 15mm f/2.4 lens on a SW Star Adventurer celestial tracking platform.

During the span of 23 hours and 56 minutes, Wojczyński shot a single frame every single minute. He then combined the frames into a timelapse video and looped the sequence 60 times to create the 24-minute 4K video seen above.
