Stunning Death Valley Dreamlapse [Video]

This video needs little introduction. Just click and watch.

But the backstory is interesting nevertheless:

[M]y brave team and I trekked to the world-famous Eureka Dunes in Death Valley National Park to search for some of the darkest skies on Earth. Despite temps below freezing, we went on December 13th, 2012 — the night of the Geminid Meteor Shower Peak, and a time of great planetary alignment. Armed only with boxed wine, firewood, and our DSLRs, we had to conquer epic climbs, sand roads with the 4×4 Jeep, and the occasional UFO!

But it was all worth it when the skies cleared and showed us an incredible galactic palette!
