Exploring The Night Skies Over Yosemite National Park
Most visitors to Yosemite National Park come to enjoy the waterfalls and the walls of granite, but there's another dimension that deserves your attention: the dazzling night skies overhead.
Videographer Steven M. Bumgardner took his cameras out after dark to capture some of those skies. Turning his lenses on vantage points such as Yosemite Fall and Half Dome set against pinpoints of light, and the occasional shooting star and passing satellite, Mr. Bumgardner has put together a steller video of the park's night skies.
Through the nearly 8-minute video you'll see galaxies and nebulae and meet some of the photographers who tote specialized equipment into the backcountry to capture the magic of the heavens. And you'll experience a truly wonderful aspect of Yosemite.
