Everything, Including Outer Space, Is Bigger In Texas

This is a time lapse video of night sky as it passes over the 2009 Texas Star Party in Fort Davis, Texas. The event has since become one of the largest meetings of amateur astronomers in North America and provides the opportunity for visual observing, astrophotography, and fellowship under clear, dark Texas skies. Cue the music. The images, taken with a 15mm fisheye lens, clearly display the galactic core of the Milky Way. Yeah, I know, I'm totally two years late and all, but looking at the stars is just like looking into the past anyway, amirite?

And so the song goes: "The stars at night..." Mind blown at 0:38.
