For the past years, Photographer Vincent Brady has been engaged in capturing time lapse images of the sky at night. However, he has moved further to produce a video depicting the 360-degree, panoramic view of the stars.

Not long ago, Vincent Brady designed a system consisting of four different cameras, which were devised to look at the sky through their fish-eye lens.

As Earth rotates with an equatorial rotation speed of 465.1 m/s, the collection of thousands of 1-minute-long exposures would present an amazing beautiful view of the stars which seem to move throughout the night.

The images were captured from all over the United States as well as Canada, including Missouri, Devils Tower in Wyoming, Logan Pass at Glacier National Park in Montana, the Rockies in British Columbia, and sandstone monuments throughout the US Southwest. As Canada Day and the U.S Independence fall within this week, such marvelous images would be the better approach to illustrate these two beautiful countries.

With the background of the acoustic guitar music composed by Brandon McCoy, one of high school friends of Vincent Brady, such images were really astonishing and relaxing.

If you want to better enjoy the gorgeous shots of the night sky by Vincent Bradley, you should go and look at his Facebook page, but do remember to switch the video to HD and go full screen, then you would definitely get unexpected experience!
