Caption: Nightfall and moonset in a desert. Time-lapse footage of the sky above a rocky skyline in a desert, turning from full sunlight to total darkness. Twilight falls and the stars emerge, rotating across the sky and brightening as the Moon sets during the night. This footage, filmed in California, USA, includes Perseid meteors (streaks of light). For the same location just before dawn, see clip K006/8404.
