“Skylight”: An Exquisite Timelapse Captures This Sky in 42 Locations Around the World

Chris Pritchard has seen some good sunsets. For his latest film “Skylight” he spent over 5 years traveling to 42 destinations around the world. In each location he captured the show put on by the sky in rich 4k detail, revealing the kind of color and light we usually see only with our naked eye. From falling meteorites and billowing clouds, to the Milky Way and jet vapor trails, his lens shows us that the beautiful view upward is one we share everywhere:

Whether in a city or rural area, surrounded by nature or man-made things, the one constant is the sky. Regardless of our lifestyle or surroundings, it is always there above us to put on a show as time passes. My goal with “Skylight” is to showcase this magic and encourage people to connect to the world around them.

With a running time of just 3 minutes, this timelapse actually shows the passage of 36 hours. The film has recently been honored with a Vimeo Staff Pick, and is available in full 4k resolution, giving enough detail to feel like you’re actually there sharing the experience.
