299/365 Star trails become a timelapse of cloudsDay 299
Found some dark sky tonight... just in time for the clouds to come in!
The soccer team had Saturday night off, and the school field was nice and dark. I setup to take 10 sec exposures - planning to shoot for about an hour. Ended up completely clouded over after 8 minutes! so my star trail circles became a short time lapse video. 8 minutes reduced to 2 seconds. At least I had a plane fly over right through the center of the frame. Sometimes you do get lucky!
Edited in lightroom. Converted to video in Quicktime pro.
