The above video is a time lapse of a trip into the Atacama Desert and reveals the stunning views and beautiful landscape–it’s definitely worth watching in full screen with the sound on. For more information about the video and the location it was created in, hit up the link below.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Thank you VERY much. I just watched it at 720p on a 40″ Samsung and it was amazing. Must have been what the skies looked like in most places 300 years ago or so. Hopefully H-T Geek will bring us their next video of the northern Atacama/Valley Of The Moon…please?
