Time lapse video shows earth rotating from viewpoint of the stars

Complete with a Star Trek-like soundtrack by Kevin Macleod, this very cool video by Stephane Guisard, Jose Francisco Salgado, and Nicolas Bustos, taken at the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope in the Atacama Desert, Chile, shows the Earth rotating from the perspective of the stars. Sit back, watch and feel like you are in an old fashioned planetarium, if you remember what those are.
