Here Are 16 Incredible 360 Panoramic Images Of Star-Studded Skies. Simply Magical…

Vincent Brady is a Michigan-based photographer who has developed a highly creative process for creating what he calls Planetary Panoramas. Here is how he explains it:

While experimenting with different photography tricks and techniques back in 2012, I was shooting 360 degree panoramas in the daytime and long exposures of the stars streaking in the sky at night. It suddenly became clear that the potential to combine the two techniques could be a trip! Since the Earth is rotating at a steady 1,040 mph I created a custom rig of 4 cameras with fisheye lenses to capture the entire night-sky in motion. Thus the images show the stars rotating around the north star as well as the effect of the southern pole as well and a 360 degree panorama of the scene on Earth. Each camera is doing nonstop long exposures, typically about 1 minute consecutively for the life of the camera battery. Usually about 3 hours. I then made a script to stitch all the thousands of these panoramas into this time-lapse.

And the results are absolutely stunning! I mean, judge for yourselves. (And make sure you watch the incredible video below.
