See stars come to life in stunning 360-degree time-lapse video

This novel 360-degree look at the night sky is like a modern-day version of Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night.

In Planetary Panorama, photographer Vincent Brady used a self-made four-camera rig to take an incredibly beautiful 360-degree look at the night sky. Each camera was equipped with a fish-eye lens and did nonstop long exposures for the three or so hours the camera's battery typically lasts. This gave Brady thousands of panorama images, which he then stitched together into a single time-lapse video. The result is an incredible, almost breathtaking modern-day version of Van Gogh's "Starry Night."

And with any video on YouTube, there's some background music to make the video pop. To this end, Brady tapped his friend and instrumentalist Brandon McCoy for the musical score. McCoy's music really brings the video to life. Sit back and watch the wonders of the stars and the universe come to life in the video above.
