Dishdance, a tribute to radio telescopes
This new and beautiful video – called Dishdance – is part of project Skyglow.
It’s a beautiful timelapse medley of radio astronomy facilities.

NOTE TO OUR READERS … When this video was released earlier today, it featured the voice of the late Carl Sagan
speaking about the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). The Carl Sagan folks – Druyan-Sagan Associates in Ithaca, New York –
have asked that the voiceover be removed and want 6-8 weeks to evaluate whether it can be included here.
Maybe Sagan’s voice will return to enhance this video, but, in the meantime, enjoy it. It’s still an awesome video.
