This week we see a time lapse of the night sky captured with DSLR photography in Death Valley on December 13, 2012, the night of the peak of the Geminid meteor shower, an incredible planetary alignment, and a bit of excitement as some sort of UFO seems to circle through the star trails several times (this shows up at 1:30-1:35). Sit back and enjoy the stylized night sky.
