This was shot over three days with a 5D Mk II at 6400 ISO, with 20 second exposures by Henry Jun Wah Lee. Consider me star struck. [TNW]

If you missed the Perseids meteor shower—and I truly hope you didn't—this beautiful time-lapse video of the view from Joshua Tree National Park should get you caught up. And fill you with more than a little wonder.

The Greatest Show in Space


Beautiful, Stunning, and above all else Mesmerizing.

And you can consider me star struck aswell.

Just recently for the past 4 months, I've been 'star gazing' and I enjoy it, and continue too enjoy it. This year was the first time I ever viewed the Perseids Meteor Shower, and im glad I was able to see it.

I hope everyone in the ATS Community enjoyed the video as much as I did.

Dont worry you didn't sound dumb. Don't worry the Perseids Meteor Shower comes yearly, so maybe next time if you want, you'll be ready

and thanks moosevernel for being helpful.

Great vid since I missed the Perseid this year, this will have to do

Wish I could project this onto my roof as I fall asleep!

What a beautiful Video!!!

I wish I can see a night sky like this. To be honest I have never seen one. Where I am you can barely see a couple hundred stars.
Curse of the city I guess.
Great find S&F

Dang, that would be nice.

If I could I'd use this exact image.

Great vid thanks for posting it. I missed the Perseids meteor shower this year, it was overcast or raining for days before and after. Even though I live close to a major city I still manage to see a few meteors every year, when weather permits.

Just beautiful! I went out to the mountains for a better view here on the East Coast and it was cloudy every evening until around midnight Sunday night with clouds drifting through. I was able to see 2 meteors around 4:40 am Monday morning. (I saw a satellite, too, but couldn't locate and identify it on heavens above or calsky.) On a clear night the limiting magnitude for the area is supposed to be 6.8 according to dark skies, and constellations are more difficult to identify because of the myriad background stars that are visible. Not a wide open view like in the vid, though--really entrancing, thanks for sharing.

Im glad you guys enjoyed it.

Im even more glad that the creator of the video, Henry Jun Wah Lee took time to make it.

I just wish I were that close to the Milky Way.

You can tell the earth isn't flat when you watch this. The ancient indians probably knew this from the stars as well.

so why do all the stars make a circle around earth?why do they do that?why would all the stars in the sky make a circle around the earths night sky as if earth is the center they circle around? do they do this on mars? on the moon? venus? do they do this on all bodies in the galaxy? is this a common thing on other celestial bodies to have the heavenlt stars circle around their night sky?
