Milky Way Rising Over Cerro Tololo Timelapse

Watch as the Milky Way rises over Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO)! In this timelapse, the disk of our home galaxy, which appears like a worm speckled with light, ascends into the night sky. Meanwhile the Moon, seen as a bright point at the left of the frame, is setting and approaching the horizon.
