Here’s another gorgeous timelapse by Gavin Heffernan, who returned to Joshua Tree National Park in California for his third look at the incredible night sky. “It was an epic night,” Gavin told UT, “with storms at first, then some of the clearest skies I’ve ever seen.”
The sky is ablaze with activity; the rolling storm, the Milky Way in all its glory, plus meteors, satellites and aircraft passing overhead. Gavin and his Sunchaser Pictures team shot the footage with a Canon 7D and Canon 5D, with a 24mm/1.4 lens and a 28mm/1.8. Most intervals are 25 seconds, except the 1st, which is 30 second, Gavin said.
