There are an incredible amount of stars – we just can’t see most of them. That’s what I discovered while making the short timelapse below. When our eyes look up at the sky, we only see some of the brightest stars because our eyes only take in some of the light. But the camera can “see” much more – each of these long-exposure images shows the sky as if the camera’s “eye” was opened for 20 seconds, and all of that light was composited into one image. Even the smallest, faintest stars are captured, and the resulting images show a sky teeming with brilliance.
