Death Valley Dreamlapse during peak of 2012 Geminid meteor shower

This video, by Sunchaser Pictures, shows the December, 2012 peak of the Geminid meteor shower over Death Valley in California, in high definition. It also captures video startrails and other night sky activity. The videographers claim that:

A “UFO” appears at (1:30-1:35) and makes three broad circular sweeps over the desert.

We’ll let you be the judge of that. Regardless, there’s some really beautiful video here. Recommended full screen viewing. Bonus points for identifying the visible planets.
