This video of the Milky Way rising at the Texas Star Party is making the rounds. It's quite lovely.
I've been getting emails and such asking if it's faked. I don't think so. It's clearly an animation made of many several-seconds-long exposures, so that each frame sees the relatively faint Milky Way. I've never been to the TSP (I would love to go, but I always wind up having some other thing to do at that time) but I've heard it's extraordinarily dark... some newbies even pack up to go home around 2:00 because they think the rising Milky Way is an approaching thunderstorm!
I'd dearly love to see that.
