Capturing the movement of the night sky
Ever seen an epic night lapse in a nature film and wonder if you could create something like that?
The night sky is one of the most fascinating and also one of the most challenging subjects to capture.
A time-lapse of the night sky takes it one step further, capturing the progression of the star's movement through multiple images combined to appear as a video.
In the video below you’ll learn everything you need to know to capture incredible night lapses - from finding the Milky Way to nailing your camera settings.

Saint Brandon Atoll
Looking for an on-the-sea getaway but can’t stand the chaos that comes with mass tourism?
Then head to Saint Brandon Atoll, a natural sanctuary that’s a little over 300 miles north of Mauritius.
Imagine yourself surrounded by unspoiled beaches, turquoise lagoons, and a vibrant underwater world teeming with colorful coral reefs.
These pristine flats and reefs are excellent for fishing, diving, and kitesurfing.
Only 200 tourists per year are allowed to enter the atoll which ensures that the serene beauty of the islands stays unspoiled.
Okavango Delta Horse Safari
When visiting Botswana’s Okavango Delta there’s no better way to savour the experience than on horseback.
During the flood season, vast areas of the Delta become inaccessible to vehicles, but horses can move across the submerged terrain with ease.
Picture yourself galloping alongside herds of giraffes and zebras. Feel the rush of excitement as you eagerly await for elephants and buffalos to appear out of the bush. Immerse yourself in mopane forests, undulating flood planes, and streams that make up the vast everchanging landscapes of the Delta.
TOGETHER WITH GLOBAL RESCUE
Traditional insurance won’t rescue you, and a medical evacuation can cost up to $300,000. The cost to Global Rescue members? Just the price of their membership, which starts as low as $139.
Global Rescue memberships provide peace of mind with travel services designed for unexpected medical and security emergencies, whether you’re a digital nomad, expat, or family.
Spain’s Pulpí Geode
Hidden beneath the town of Pulpí in Almeria, Spain, lies one the largest crystal caves ever found: the Pulpí Geode.
This natural wonder is a colossal crystal cavity that stretches 26 feet long. Stepping into the geode is like stepping into an otherworldly realm, as you find yourself surrounded by huge translucent gypsum crystals.
Birding: Bird enthusiasts are flocking to Alabama this summer.
Health: Dopamine fasting in the mountains.
Underwater: The Hungarian city built over 80 underwater caves.
App: Find dog-friendly hikes and more with BringFido.
Rewilding: How the return of the bison will transform Europe.
