UK photographer captures some of the most beautiful movements of the night sky over Britain

This amazing video captures some of the most beautiful movements of the night sky in various locations around Britain. Chris Cork, 40, spent more than 50 hours creating a timelapse video of some of his most spectacular shots taken over the last two years after picking up a camera for the first time during lockdown. The snaps depict St Thomas Beckett Church in Romney Marsh, Prospect Cottage in Dungeness and Herne Bay pier, all in Kent. He also managed to capture Stonehenge last spring and included that in the footage. Most shots show Kent but some show Sussex and some others were taken abroad. Chris, who runs the Mango Printing Company in Maidstone, Kent, said it was a “therapy” for him as his printing business suffered because of lockdown. The dad-of-two said he taught himself the skill on YouTube. He said: “I started seeing it online and I thought how do I do that? I bought my camera first and to begin with it was just for holidays. “All the lockdowns affected my business and I needed money so I thought ‘I can get out quite well.’ "It's something I've wanted to do for years, but I've only recently had the time to do it. "To get the Milky Way you have to take 20 seconds to get one picture to get the detail out. “So to get four seconds of Milky Way movement you've got to take about 30 minutes of shots. "Each 10-second clip probably takes an hour to render, but it could take longer if you need to do some trial and error. “My favourite place to take pictures St Mary’s Bay on Romney Marsh. It is just peaceful and it gets your imagination going. “It just gives me a bit of peace.” He hopes to continue sharing his content with others after receiving positive feedback. He added: "It inspires me to do it more when I get nice feedback."
