VIVA – Recently, there was a time lapse video of a night sky is going viral on social media. Such videos are not rare, but a photographer, Eric Brummel has done something unusual way.

Instead of the Milky Way galaxy moving across the night sky, it is the Earth that is in motion in the video. Originally created in 2020, the clip is again gaining traction on the internet. This time, it has been posted on Twitter by Buitengebieden and many people feel amazed by this post.

The photographer created the video by using a star tracker with his camera. The optical device rotates the camera at the same speed as the Earth, but in the opposite direction. It has visual effect of stabilizing the sky.

"This is the kinda rare stuff more of us need in our lives...the simplicity and sheer splendor of the night sky in all its glory; a rarely tangible thing to bear witness to within the cities we live. What a brilliant gift to our eyes from this photographer," one of Twitter users said.

This time lapse video breaks the flat Earth conspiracy theory because it shows the Earth's rotation about time zones. The Earth's rotation is proof that the Earth is round. If it were flat, the Earth would not rotate and there would be no different time zones.
