Photographer Teoh Hui Chieh from Malaysia created a beautiful timelapse of the night sky in Northern Thailand, and he was excited to see the North Star. “Polaris may be very common for people like you in the northern hemisphere,” he said via email, “but to us at the equator, it’s something that we don’t see everyday.”
The timelapse was taken over the course of 3 nights: 2 nights on a rooftop in Nan, and 1 night in Doiphukha National Park. It includes a combination of stars moving across sky along with views of the local terrain, along with gorgeous star trails.
“The last night in the National Park, the surrounding area was full of trees, but I was lucky to find a “hole” to capture Polaris,” Chieh said. The Andromeda Galaxy is also visible in the video starting at 1:30 and 2:00.
