Nope, on average you will see about one every hour. Also, where I am, 40 degrees south, you see about 1 satellite every 15 minutes or so.
Nah, they`re not that rare. It`s not uncommon for there to be hundreds visible to the naked eye in any one night from a given vantage point. During meteor showers such as the Perseids, there can be more than one "shooting star" per minute.
We only think of them as rare because don`t spend much time as individual observers looking at the night sky.
There are a number of images of the Andromeda Galaxy which the Milky Way is widely thought to resemble, but the Human Race has never sent anything beyond the edge of our galaxy, thus we cannot see exactly what our galaxy looks like to an outside observer.
It is like trying to determine the exterior appearance of a house solely by looking around at the interior.
The Milky Way is a spiral galaxy. There are arms that come off of the central point. So, what we see is another arm.
This is the only reason I`d never be able to live in a city. I can`t imagine not seeing the stars.
But you`re right, it is spectacular.
Funny you mention that, cause I was thinking that too. Seems to me there was a subliminal message implanted in the title of the link somewhere, where it`s called "Sweet Time-Lapse Of The Milky Way Over Hawaii".
Darned if I can spot it though.
Jeepers-frakkin-Allah. Millions of stars send light for tens of millions of years from every imaginable direction to demonstrate the incredibly complex rotation of the earth and cosmos in a video taking thousands of years of technological development to produce, and you want something `spectacular`?
Your missus must live in constant fear of replacement.
and not stop-motion, try high-speed cameras
is it just me or has IAB really gone downhill?

That sky is awesome, though. ours isnt nearly as busy.
I love you.
And this video is absolutely beautiful. O.O !
"So many stars...""Which one do you want to visit next?"
On a serious note though, that was beautiful
But maybe in this case they added some contrastand bright too, otherwise colors would be darker
