Sometimes, hours seem to pass in mere moments.

That's the case in a wonderful time-lapse video created by St. John's photographer Geoff Smith last weekend.

Smith compressed an hour of starry movement off the shores of Cape Spear into a 12-second sequence.

Smith says he took 20 second exposures every 25 seconds, and pressed it all together to make a seamless video.

You can even see the fog rolling in as the stars pass by.

Smith says Newfoundland and Labrador is one of the only places where such a scene is possible.
