Time Lapse Video of Nighttime Clouds

I went out the other evening, hoping to find clear skies full of stars.  The moon was very nearly in the New Moon phase, so I had hopes of perhaps even seeing the Milky Way.  Well, that wasn’t going to happen due to the clouds.  I decided to make the best of the conditions I had and started shooting the clouds.  Here is a short time-lapse video of what I saw.

The red spots on the lower right side are nearby towers.  They appear to be steady instead of blinking because the exposure for each photo was 20 seconds, much longer than the blink rate of the lights.  I took a photo every 30 seconds over about 35 minutes to capture enough images for this video.
