This is a 6min video with commentary. It has some stunning images of the night sky that were taken for the 2012 Astronomy Photographer of the Year Competition.

I hope some of you enjoy the images.

Take a journey through the night sky with two of the nine judges - Chris Lintott who is best known as co-presenter of the BBC's The Sky at Night, and Olivia Johnson from the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

Baldrick, thanks for posting that link. Great video. The images are really impressive, dramatic and stunning. I liked the ones with the fireflies. I haven't seen any of those nocturnal insects where we live in the Pacific Northwest, although they were a common sight east of the Rockies, and we them here and there in Thailand.
