an astronomy colleague of mine, Dr Ángel López-Sánchez, recently created a nice time-lapse film of images he collected while observing at the Siding Spring in Australia, where the Australian Astronomical Telescope sits.
he recorded some of the scenes while i was out observing with him, and i always worried that maybe the kangaroos would knock over his camera equipment as it sat clicking away throughout the long nights. apparently enough footage survived, because this video is great!
other scenes from siding spring:
tim tam slams
milky way over AAT
sunset over warrumbungle park
the invaders have landed
the UK-Schmidt telescope
telescope domes and kangaroos
