Astronomers shoot first in ‘Star Wars’-style timelapse
This three-minute timelapse video was shot at the summit of Mauna Kea, the 13,803-foot (4.2km) volcano in Haiwaii. Due to its position, the peak is ideal for space observation. It’s currently home to the Manua Kea Observatories, which are used for scientific research across the electromagnetic spectrum, and will soon play host to the world’s largest optical telescope.
