Camelopardalid Meteor Shower as Seen from Joshua Tree

Astro timelapse photographer Gavin Heffernan trekked to Joshua Tree National Park in hopes of capturing precious frames of the highly-anticipated, never-before-seen Camelopardalid meteor shower. While the astrological event wasn't quite as grand as its hype, Heffernan was fortunate enough to capture an incredible strike over a beautiful Milky Way, as well as several other stunning images. See an array of long-exposure shots captured over the weekend, plus desert sunset vistas and some of Heffernan's best psychedelic “star trails” designs, created by tracing the trajectory of stars across the earth's natural rotation.
