More than 16,000 photos shot over two years were stitched together to create this stunning time lapse of Namibia's night sky.
The video, which was produced by Marsel van Oosten at Squiver.com, won first prize in the 2012 Travel Photographer Of The Year Awards and captured the attention of NASA, which made it Monday's Astronomy Picture of the Day.
It's also become quite the internet sensation, garnering more than 100,000 views in less that a week.
According to NASA, Namibia boasts one of the planet's darkest night skies, creating a spectacular showcase for shooting stars, constellations, and the Milky Way.
You'll be especially dazzled at the 40-second mark, where artificial lights emphasize a mist surrounding thorn trees in Deadvlei.
From the prominently-featured quiver trees, to the shadow of the setting moon, the clip is nothing short of amazing.
So what are you waiting for?
