If You Are Lucky Enough,

to live where there is little light pollution,

 you will be able to see the Milky Way, but if not here are some pictures of it taken by Adrien Mauduit who travels the world seeking out remote places to create photographs and makes films of the night sky,

 to the naked eye, the galaxies around us appear as single points of light; Mauduit’s “astro-lapse” visuals showcase the dimensionality of the universe through specialized photo and video equipment,

 His most recent video, Galaxies Volume III, is the third in the astro-lapse series and focuses on the core of the Milky Way.

 Mauduit explains in a statement about the project that from a young age he has been interested in  the natural wonders of the environment, and by “showing the true beauty of the universe I could contribute in my own limited way to bringing the real dark skies to the hectic and light polluted urban jungle.” 

the resulting film above includes dramatic shots of shooting stars, silhouetted mountains, and rushing clouds foregrounding the shimmering night sky, to view the film in full size and detail click here, You can see more of Mauduit’s work on Vimeo and Instagram, and his work is absolutely stunning.
