This timelapse video was taken in the Joshua Tree Park. All annoying airplanes have been edited out and the result is the beautiful combination of the night sky and the meteor.
The footage was taken in 2013 using a Canon 6D with a 14mm and 16mm wide angle lens on a Kessler CineSlider. The park itself is in south-eastern California and has been a national park since 1994.
The Perseids are a frequent shower, associated with the comet Swift-Tuttle and tend to be most active from about July 17 to August 24th. In 2015 it is expected the peak of the Perseid shower will be around August 12th and 13th.
