Thankful Thursday - For the Stars Spinning in the Sky

One night that we were camped out earlier this summer, there was no moon and the sky was perfectly clear. We could see zillions of stars in the ink black sky.

I made a time lapse of the stars spinning around the North Star. It is very short but I think it's amazing to see how many stars were visible that night.

I am thankful for every one of those stars!

You can watch the video either here or at Youtube.


  1. that is breathtaking... so many diamonds on the sky ;O)

  2. I know you are tired of the word AMAZING but what else can I say. I had no idea the stars SPIN.. fantastic video. love it. also thankful for seeing this sight

  3. Your stars are so amazing, we'd love to see that just once! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  4. That is so beautiful and something many of us will never experience. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Oh my word above...we are awe struck!! I think your back ground is in biology but should you tire of it you could go in to cinematography, or combine you love of photography and animals as National Geo Wild photographer . Thank you as always for taking the care and time to share your talents and pups and forest critters with us

  6. So incredible! Living in the city, I never get to sees stars like this and am very grateful you shared this video.

  7. My best memories, that I think of often, are of skies like that. Thank you so much for sharing with us.

  8. As Sandra said above, amazing is a word that comes to mind every time we visit here. Your work is truly amazing. Just imagine if we could have even a few of the wishes so many make on those stars could come true!!!

  9. That's pretty cool. Not a big fan of astronomy, but this looks really pretty.

  10. Isn't that amazing! One thing I miss about camping is enjoying the night time stars. We're such "early to bed, early to rise" people now, I rarely get out and enjoy the night sky. I need to correct that!
