This Amazing Timelapse Video Shows North Carolina Like You’ve Never Seen it Before

In winter, it seems the moon is brighter and closer, the air is thinner, and we have a better view of the twinkling night sky as opposed to the warmer months. Amazing things can happen when you bundle up a bit and get out to do some stargazing in the Tar Heel state. That’s exactly what Star Mountain Media did in this incredible video.

The filmmaker traveled to Huckleberry Knob and Salvo, one of the most western and one of the most eastern points in North Carolina, to capture the footage. What you see below is a statewide representation of the breathtaking night sky. Enjoy!

It really is beyond incredible, and amazing the technical talent that goes into creating something like this. I could watch this video 100 times and not get tired of it!
