The Perseid meteor shower over Joshua Tree National Park.

This is a composite of 13 frames from a timelapse, showing all the meteor strikes in this direction over a few hours time. This was shot on Sunday, August 12, the night after the peak of the Perseid meteor shower.

The sky was dark with good visibility, the temperature was perfect, and I had great company - a welcome change from most of my solitary trips to the desert. An all around awesome experience.
