Narrated by Dr Natasha Hurley-Walker, this unique timelapse movie shows the sky above a ‘tile’ of the Murchison Widefield Array radio telescope, located in outback Western Australia. The ‘normal’ optical sky transitions to a view of the sky at radio wavelengths. The Milky Way is visible as a band across the sky and the dots beyond are some of the 300,000 galaxies observed by the telescope for the GLEAM survey.
