Welcome to Galaxy M-45.
Not exactly the most attractive name as it appears on paper, so it was nicknamed the "Barren Galaxy" by the astronomers in the lab.

This galaxy used to burn bright with life and excitement, however around 10 million years ago it grazed to close to another larger galaxy. Ultimately splitting it'self into the current, much smaller, version we see.

Now detached from it's mother galaxy, the Barren Galaxy now travels rogue through space. With a strong star in it's centre, it manages to stay alive and fight it's way back to life.

Journey with me, as we set our telescope on that little sector of space. Together we can bare witness to this little galaxies fight for survival, and it's epic history. (For as we know, from this distance away, everything we see, has actually happened millennial ago.)

Technical Details:
Took about 2.5 hrs in Adobe After Effects.

I enjoy making these animations. I am aware that they are starting to look very similar to one another, so I'm trying my best to make each one just slightly more unique than the last. In this case, the stars are stationary. They do not move, the emitter stops, and all that moves is the camera.

If you guys like these animations feel free to leave a comment down below, let me know what you think.
If there is something else in my gallery you enjoyed more, please, also leave a comment. I can revisit that theme :)

Thank you for viewing. +Watch and +Fav if you liked it!!

You've made quite a beautiful clip. I think the speed of movement is just right - gentle and peaceful. The only disappointment I felt, was that it ended far too soon. I wanted to make at least one full revolution.

The short length of the animation was nessasary unfortunately. The file size of flash animations i'm allowed to uploa is only small; therefore, the length of the film has to compensate to limit the file size.
Upgrading my account will allow me to post actual videos, which could be much longer. I just cant afford it lol. Thank you for the great comment, glad u enjoyed it :D
