This is a time lapse video of the sky over the 2009 Nova Sedis Fall Star Party at Chiefland Astronomy Village in Florida. The time lapse was recorded from the evening of November 13-14, 2010. Astronomers generally don’t like clouds; however, they add to this time lapse video. The video was made with a Canon EOS-5D camera and 15mm fisheye lens. The video shows the Summer Milky Way and Jupiter setting in the West and the Pleides and Orion with the Winter Milky Way rising in the East followed by Mars, Leo and Saturn. The sky glow in the lower left of the field is from Gainesville and Ocala, Florida and illuminates the clouds as they pass over head. There is moderate aircraft activity which shows up as streaking lines passing through the sky. As Venus and the Sun rise, ground fog moves across the astronomy field.
