Start your week with a truly epic time lapse video of the Grand Canyon.
The video is part of a project called SKYGLOW, aimed at educating viewers on the dangers of urban light pollution in North America. SKYGLOW is a team of two filmmakers who made a three-year journey of more 150,000 miles traveled and 3,000,000 pictures taken. The end result is a hardcover photo book and timelapse video series exploring that includes some gorgeous views of the night sky. But the video above captures a rare phenomenon:
“Cold air is trapped in the canyon and topped by a layer of warm air, which in combination with moisture and condensation form the phenomenon referred to as the full cloud inversion,” says SKYGLOW photographer Harun Mehmedinovic. “We were extremely lucky to be there to capture it, and it’s a collection of unique footage not found anywhere else.”
