Top New Timelapse Videos: “NOX ATACAMA III” In Chile By Martin Heck (2020)

Filmed and Edited by: Martin Heck – Timestorm Films

Home to the darkest and cleanest skies in the world, the Atacama Desert offers views to the nightsky like no other. 2 years after the very successful first video “Nox Atacama” we return to this magnificent region and get rewarded with uncountable numbers of stars and fantastic nebulae in one of the most quiet a empty places on earth. Not a single noise distracts from the grand show the nightsky has to offer. “Nox Atacama II” was also filmed in this period.

Filmed over a month in Mar/April 2019, I worked in freezing temperatures, altitudes up to 5200m/17000ft, salt lakes and icy slopes. The Atacama is not welcoming to life and equipment. The lack of oxygen makes it tough to get anything done in these high altitudes. But it provides without doubt for epic and vast vistas of one of the greatest landscapes on earth.

The “Roque de los Muchachos Observatory” contains jointly the telescopes and instruments of about 60 institutions from more than 20 countries.

But beside the modern, scientific research that is being done here, this place also as a rich history of the native population as place to observe the stars. Petroglyphs confirm that there have been astronomical observations thousands of years ago already.

Filmed for the documentary “Star Stuff” by Milad Tangshir (milad.tangshir@gmail.com). Check out the trailer: youtube.com/watch?v=F7Vp5waD4i8

Observatories European Southern Observatory ESO in Chile timelapse video by Martin Heck 2019

Part two of a series of journeys to the big astronomical observatories of this planet. In this video: The Paranal Observatory and the Atacama Large Millimeter Array – ALMA. With some of the biggest ground-based telescopes on earth, the observatories of the European Southern Observatory in Chile are at the bleeding edge of astronomical research. These incredibly complex machines, operating synchronized and precisely in the very remote and hostile environments of the Atacama Desert and Andes, enable deep views into the universe.

All the sequences were shot in only 4 nights in total, but on two trips in 2017 and 2019.
