To create the image, Solheim mounted his Canon EOS 400D onto a tripod and positioned it by a window in his home in Oslo, Norway. Every half hour for one year, he took a photo; this resulted in 16,000 images, from which he selected 3,888 to combine into the composite using scripts and codes submitted by savvy followers.
