You have likely already seen nighttime time-lapses in which the rotation of Earth causes the night sky to move. This incredibly neat time-lapse flips that on its head by holding the Milky Way stationary, showing the ground tilting as Earth continues to rotate and making for quite the mindblowing effect.
Coming to you from Aryeh Nirenberg, this creative and trippy time-lapse shows Earth rotating as the Milky Way remains stationary, causing the ground to tilt at increasingly striking angles. Of course, we are used to seeing time-lapses in which the ground remains stationary and the night sky consequently rotates through the frame. But tossing aside convention for a second and speaking mathematically, there is no reason you can't choose to stabilize the night sky instead, which is exactly what Nirenberg did, creating this unique and visually arresting result. The 55-second time-lapse took approximately 1,100 10-second exposures to create, for which he chose to use an astro-modified Sony a7S II (talk about the perfect night sky camera) with a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L II lens. Nirenberg has lots of very neat time-lapses in his portfolio, so be sure to check out his YouTube channel and Instagram for more!
