Longtime EarthSky friend Jack Fusco dropped us a note earlier today. He wrote of his newest time-lapse video, which he has titled Chasing Starlight. It explores the dark skies of Banff and Jasper National Parks in Alberta, Canada. You can read more about the locations in Jack’s sequence notes related to this video. Jack wrote on his YouTube page:
There’s a certain feeling that you get from standing under a truly dark sky for the first time. Although it’s hard describe the exact feeling of awe that’s felt, it’s an experience that doesn’t leave you. In fact, it’s something that can change you. It can make you forget about sleeping when the sun has set and instead readies you for an adventure. This time-lapse is about capturing the adventure of chasing star filled skies and the feeling you get from experiencing it. I hope it inspires people to find their own adventure chasing the stars.
Chasing Starlight was shot using a Nikon D800E & a Nikon D810 equipped with Nikon 14-24 f/2.8 lenses.
Thank you, Jack!
