Night Time in Antarctica

The photographer of Night Sky in Antarctica is astrophysicist Robert Schwarz, the CMB-Observatory (Cosmic Microwave Background) operator at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station--with post-production help, of course.

The very brief notes below the video note that "the Aurora Australis can be seen together with the core of the Milky Way only here in Antarctica. Temperatures below -70°C/-95°F during the polar night are not uncommon. Together with strong winds and exceptional aridity this is one of the hardest places to shoot time-lapse in. Special equipment has been constructed and modified to keep the cameras running."

The music and video are very nicely matched.
