Thunderstorms and Brilliant Stars Stun in Randy Halverson’s New 4K Time-Lapse

Time-lapse maestro Randy Halverson shoots the skies about South Dakota’s Badlands in his new 4K video “Field of View.”

As Bad Astronomy’s Phil Plait explains, “I love watching the stars above a thunderstorm and also the bubbling, rising currents of warm air percolating at the tops of those cumulonimbus clouds. A favorite is also to try to spot geosynchronous satellites in the views of stars; as the stars move across the screen due to Earth’s rotation, the geosynch sats look like they’re standing still in the sky.”
