Location of Photo:

Joshua Flats, Death Valley, California

Date/Time of photo:

July 27th, 9:35 PM.


Canon 5D MkII body (21.1 megapixel) with a Rokinon 14mm f1.4 lens. Exposure of 60 seconds at ISO 400.


In late July I was visiting Joshua Flats in the Northwest region of Death Valley taking star trail and Milky Way photos among the Joshua trees. The camera I had set up for star trails happen to capture the Chinese satellite booster that burned up rather spectacularly over Reno and Las Vegas. Just a lucky coincidence that the photo was composed well.
