*** WATCH THIS FULL SCREEN IN 720P HD FORMAT! *** Timelapse footage of the annual Perseid Meteor Shower in August. The slow, horizontal lights are airplanes. The fast, vertical streaks are the meteors. Many are faint so you’ll only see most fo them if you follow the instructions above and view this in 720P HD and expand the video full screen. This footage is all from the Perseid Meteor shower in 2009. I’m working on a new timelapse video to cover 2010-2012 as well as other meteor showers such as the Geminids in December. I’ve written a blog post on my no-moon shooting technique: Producing Milky Way Images activesole.blogspot.com You can also create a timelapse video from a sequence of night images: Create A Timelapse Video of a Meteor Shower activesole.blogspot.com Lastly, this is 100% real, 0% fake. Here in the Eastern Sierra region of California and Nevada where I live, we have very few people to produce light pollution, very dry, clear skies, and we can drive to elevations over 11000 feet there there is less air and pollution to shoot through. These links to more of my night photography clearly demonstrate that I have no need to fake any of this: plus.google.com www.youtube.com

Your view is so amazing… Where i live i can barely see the meteor shower and theres barely any stars in the sky. I wish i could live there. 🙂

and you spelled “dumb” wrong…

Jeff Sullivan says:

I can’t post links here in the comments, but some links to my blog articles on night photography and time-lapse are posted in the caption above.

Jeff Sullivan says:

As suggested in the caption, to see the (brief) meteors:
*** Watch the video full screen, in 720P HD format. ***
With the time-lapse resulting in a video sped up 450 times “real time”, the meteors show up for a fraction of a second. It’s clearly stated that the streaks which take a while to cross the screen are airplanes, but people who take the time to read view this in HD to clearly see the meteors as well.

Jeff Sullivan says:

These locations are in the Eastern Sierra region of California and Nevada where I live (and lead night photography workshops). Much of the land in the region is used to collect and send water to Los Angeles, so we have very few people living here to produce light pollution. It’s high desert country, so we have very dry, clear skies, and we can drive to elevations over 11,000 feet there there is less air and pollution to shoot through.

Not without a licensing agreement.

When I’m shooting these meteor showers, they are my background for everything!

Jeff Sullivan says:

The song is Antony Raijekov’s “Lightin”.

Jeff Sullivan says:

The song is listed in the credits at the end, Antony Raijekov’s “Lightin”.

Dave Wright says:

Noon Abd says:

701tepmurt says:

Can I just make this a loop and use it as a background for everything?



robynmichellexo1 says:

the sky in itself is so amazing! Where is this?

romnomnomnomnomnom says:

what do you call place like these where you can see many stars and nebula ?

Tom Russell says:

We are all but a speck of dust spinning around in a giant vacuum like any one of the millions of dots seen in this video. It’s a bit cliché but kinda puts things in perspective when you take a minute to think about the actual size of what you can see in this video. Kinda makes me feel, useless. Great thanks for making me feel so small Jeff Sullivan XD

6NoHope9 says:

It could be a few reasons
1. Too much light pollution in your area ( if you live in a city with street lights or building lights, you will only see a black sky… you must look from the countryside without lights ).
2. Too many clouds.

6NoHope9 says:

You are an idiot, he clearly said in multiple comments and in the video description that some of them are aeroplanes and some are meteors. You are just embarrassing yourself.

midnigthproduction says:

Hey can i use this video on my video about the epic world:)?
