Image Details:

This footage was taken by me at the Grand Canyon a year ago this week and I just finished creating this video from those images (due to procrastination.)
The Moon was 50% full and was shining down on the canyon below and dimming the Milky Way and stars above.
In this time lapse video you will see; the Earth's rotation, the stars rotating around Polaris, people camping down in the canyon next to the Colorado River, someone climbing around on the cliffs in the middle of the night to the right ... and quite a few planes passing by. Hope you enjoy it!
