Nocturnal - Scenes of the Southern Night, Western Australia and Chile. HD

by Colin Legg

This is a selection of nightscape scenes I put together for entry into the 2012 David Malin Awards. The awards are for images of the night sky and landscape captured by Australian astrophotographers.

I am very happy and honoured to report that this video won 1st prize in the ‘animation’ category at the 2012 awards.

A number of interesting sky and space phenomena are included in the clip:

1. Comet Lovejoy.
2. Exploding Meteor and Train.
3. A Total Lunar eclipse from start to finish.
4. Multi coloured air glow in the upper atmosphere and ionosphere.
5. Lightning storms.

The images were shot over the last 2 years. I’d like to thanks the following people/groups for helping bring some of these scenes to life:

1. Thomas Bethell – Little Bramper (1st and last scene)
2. Dynamic Perception – Dolly and MX2 controller
3. David Gargadennec - 5 camera rig and camer
