This is what I did with 2 years worth of static star timelapses that might have otherwise went unseen.

"These scenes are created by stacking a sequence of long-exposure, high-resolution digital photographs in Adobe After Effects and allowing each photograph to linger on the screen for a short duration of time before fading.
The resulting “Startrails” video captures the actual motion and apperance of light; nothing has been added with respect to computer generated graphics.” (link)
