When we watch the sky at night, we see the stars and planets wheel above us as they rise and set.

But what if we were standing among the stars? What if the stars stood still and we could tell that the Earth was moving?

Astrophotographer Bartosz Wojczynski set up his camera on a Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer mount that automatically canceled out the Earth’s rotation. In his video the stars stand still.
