Take a moment to relax and reflect with this amazing time-lapse video

(CBS News) In the middle of the day in the middle of the week in the (approximately) middle of the month, I'd say it's about time to take a moment to relax, reflect and watch the amazing time-lapse video above. The stunning visuals start to kick in at about 18 seconds.

The short but very beautiful Vimeo video entitled "Ascendance" was directed by Henry Jun Wah Lee of Evosia Studios (and with music by Justin R. Durban) who writes:

Play full screen so you can count the meteors! Shot in Joshua Tree National Park and the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest during the Perseid meteor shower. Features ancient trees, lightning, rainbows, meteors, the Milky Way, and lots of stars. Enjoy!

After watching that video, I really felt the impulse to go camping and wish I lived near Joshua Tree National Park... are there any good equivalents in the Northeast?  Feel free to leave me some comment love below with suggestions.  And if you'd like to check out more amazing work by Henry Jun Wah Lee of Evosia Studios, you can visit his Vimeo page by clicking here.
