Ascendance [Time-Lapse Video]

Play full screen so you can count the meteors!

Shot in Joshua Tree National Park and the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest during the Perseid meteor shower, Ascendance features ancient trees, lightning, rainbows, meteors, the Milky Way, and a multitude of stars. ZOMG!

  1. Fantastic work. Keep in mind that most of those white streaks are actually airplanes' navigation lights… not meteors! (A real meteor is an ephemeral event lasting usually a fraction of a second. The fact that the streaks show on successive medium-long exposures means that the object is traversing the sky over the course of a minute or two.) In no way does this take away the beauty of the time lapse. But alas… most of those are just airplanes.
