Indeed, there is. In the future, please put more effort into your threads than just saying "A thing on the Internet exists"

In fact, there are two of them circulating at the same time. Many people on Twitter seem to think it's particularly noteworthy. It isn't.

It's pretty obvious that the stars are in motion relative to the Earth (and, to state the obvious, that the Earth is in motion relative to the stars). The fact that a photographer chose to stabilise his timelapse on a particular star provides us with no new insight, even if it's pretty.

EDIT: For reference, here are the two videos that the OP may be referring to - hopefully we can save some people from visiting the cancer that is Reddit.
