Time-lapse videos of meteor showers are stunning. Footage of alleged UFOs are intriguing. But what do you get when you put the two of them together? A "dreamlapse."
The video "Death Vally Dreamlapse" shows one team's trek to the Eureka Dunes on Dec. 13, 2012, to catch the peak of the Geminid meteor shower.
" ... we had to conquer epic climbs, sand roads with the 4x4 Jeep, and the occasional UFO," Sunchaser Pictures writes on the video's description.
The streak of light just off center to the right in this image shows the alleged UFO, which zoomed in and out of the camera's field of view for a few seconds. The videographer pointed out that although it appears to be moving fast, this is due to the time-lapse speed of the footage. In reality, it moved quite slow. (Image: Vimeo screenshot)
Here's what Sunchaser Pictures had to say about the UFO:
The "UFO" appears at (1:30-1:35) and makes three broad circular sweeps over the desert. Though in timelapse it appears to be moving fast, consider the 5 seconds = about 50 minutes, so it's creeping. There was no sound, so it definitely wasn't a helicopter. Closer picture here (bit.ly/T3yK3s). It can also be seen cutting through the circular star trails in the shot used [below]!

If might be easier for you to spot the UFO in these pictures if you take a look at the footage shot by Gavin Heffernan:
