Three Days of Perseid Meteor Shower in 60 Seconds (Timelapse)
'You could see the Milky Way and meteors with your naked eye; even some meteors with smoke trails. Obviously it's hard to notice any astro movement with your naked eye -- that's where a time-lapse really allows you to see nature in a new way.'
Time-lapse details: This was shot on a Canon 6D with a 14mm and 16mm wide angle lens on a Kessler CineSlider. He shot three four-to-six-hour sequences on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, at 30 second intervals, for a total of 1,878 raw files. His wife, Dawna Ara, composed and produced the music.

Time-lapse footage during the Perseid Meteor Shower. Shot on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night in Joshua Tree National Park.
Please note that not all light trails in the shots are meteors. Some are air planes crossing the sky. You can tell by the length and direction of the light trails. Air planes go all the way through and come for any direction.
