Tuesday morning I found myself trying to capture the milky way through the smoke. If you look carefully you can see a deer silhouette on the left corner of the radio tower in the initial frame of the timelapse and dear moving around on the road during it. Pretty cool, probably the first time I’ve captured wildlife in a night timelapse.
Orion above the smoke.
Sunday morning I managed to capture this shot during morning twilight of Orion rising, zodiacal light and a Perseid meteor falling through the scene. It was a great way to start the morning.
I returned to Mount Ashland again last night to try and beat the smoke again and chase the stars. Unfortunately the wind shifted a bit and I found myself standing in a haze not nearly the thick smoke down in the valleys though. The heavens still shone through the haze as the stars became more and more clear as they reached zenith. The milky way rose above the heavy wildfire smoke in Northern California as the planet Mars accompanied the night sky to the left.
Saturday night my kids and I headed up to Mount Ashland in Southern Oregon to try and get above the wildfire smoke to view the Perseids meteor shower. After shooting some milky way pictures, I setup a four hour time lapse. This image is a composite of twenty-four frames from the time lapse. So these are the brightest meteors covering a mere twelve minutes in the four hours.
It’s that time of year again. If you can find clear skies this weekend be sure to look to the sky for the annual Perseid meteor shower. This could be a really good year as the moon won’t interfere with the show. The meteors will originate from the northeast sky from the constellation Perseus. The meteor shower should be most active after midnight into the dawn hours on Sunday and Monday mornings.
Where was the first place you ever saw the milky way with your own eyes? On Friday night I met these two from Houston, Texas and this was their first time seeing the milky way. @becomingtortoise had the exact same camera setup as me, so along with capturing these fun shots, I got to give her an impromptu photo workshop since she wanted to learn. This was a fun and unplanned addition to my and @kiesullivan getting out of the smoke to chase a night of clear skies at the Oregon coast.
Have you ever seen the milky way with your eyes? With 80% of the world’s population never having seen it due to light pollution, you aren’t alone if you haven’t seen it. Ironically light pollution is probably the easiest type of pollution we can have a solution for by turning off lights we can reclaim the night skies. A by product of that is using less energy and helping other pollution issues. It’s funny to think turning off lights could literally change how we experience the world.
Honestly, I put this together so I could make some new music. This is a compilation of time lapses I’ve shot over the last four years (representing hundreds of hours of work and thousands of miles traveled) with some fresh, spacey music. So, if you want to get lost in space and realize that you’re stuck on this planet, maybe this video is the comprise. If you want to view it without the breaks, it’s also non my IGTV channel and up over on my Facebook.
