After the great response to the original Death Valley Dreamlapse, Sunchaser Pictures decided to give it another go. We’re happy – and we know you will be – that they decided to produce a sequel. Look for the pink aurora during the star trails shot at 1:36 and later in more detail at 2:22. This aurora was made possible due to a CME that happened the night of March 17, 2013 and is a rarity at latitudes as far south as Death Valley.
