In the video, created by "hobbyist astronomer" Alex Cherney, we're treated to a spectacle in the sky, courtesy of a colorful sunset, dark floating clouds and a vertical band of zodiacal light. The constellation Orion also makes an appearance toward the end of the time lapse.
Cherney used over 30 hours of exposure, collected between 2009 and 2010, to make the award-winning video.
