What Orion looked like back in the day

From Vox:


80% of Americans can no longer see the Milky Way where they live.

Filmmaker Sriram Murali is here to show them what they're missing.

In the video above — best seen full screen — he shows us what the constellation Orion looks like in a number of locations, each further from light pollution. In the first two — San Francisco and Palo Alto — you can just faintly see Orion . By the time you get to the last location, Goblin Valley State Park in Utah, Orion is lost again — because there are so many other stars to look at.

Murali created the video out of a series of still-frame images he animated into a time lapse. That's why you see the lights of planes and perhaps a few meteors shooting across the frame.
