Incredible Time-Lapse Over Grand Canyon is the Best Thing You’ll See All Week [Video]

In this case, though, you can marvel at the stellar night sky over Grand Canyon National Park and Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, from the comfort of your computer chair.

Gavin Heffernan and Harun Mahmedinović shot and produced the time-lapse footage and called the video “YIKÁÍSDÁHÁ.” The title is apparently “Navajo for Milky Way or ‘That Which Awaits the Dawn.” For more information on how the video was made and how the images were captured, visit their Vimeo page and take a look at their other time-lapses here.
