Filmed and produced by Gavin Heffernan and Harun Mehmedinovic in association with BBC Earth, Wavelight is a timelapse of The Wave, Arizona’s famed rock formation. Comprised of sandstone that hardened over time, The Wave gets its unique form from years of rain and wind erosion.

The video shows the Wave from daylight to night in just over three minutes, with a grand finale of spectacular light trails created by stars.
