Astronomer’s Paradise: Beautiful Time Lapse Video from the Atacama Desert

There are places on Earth so remote the sky remains crystal clear and free from light pollution–the Atacama Desert in Chile, highlighted in this video, is one of those places.

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 a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). 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?
