Vivid timelapse captures the Milky Way in Big Sky Country

It’s not called Big Sky Country for nothing. As images of the Milky Way taken by photographer Craig R Smith in remote parts of Montana on July 2 prove, the stargazing in remote parts of his home state is nothing short of spectacular. Smith shot timelapse videos on his Sony a7R II camera, first in Custer, then in Hysham, before finishing his expedition with a four-hour filming session at Beartooth Pass in Red Lodge, near Yellowstone National Park. Smith told Storyful, “I’ve never seen a night sky as clear or dark as on top of the Beartooths.” Smith captured his clips as a series of photos, which he edited using Adobe Lightroom. He estimated that there were around 1,100 photos, which he then combined in a sequence to form a timelapse video in Adobe Premiere Pro. Credit: Craig R Smith via Storyful
