Borrego Springs, California is one of four certified “Dark Sky Communities” in the world according the Dark Sky Association — which is something that sounds like a supervillain organization but is not. Borrego Springs also has a bunch of steel statues of things like dinosaurs, dragons, and huge insects that make for some lovely contrast against star trail footage. This fact is demonstrated by filmmaker Gavin Heffernan in this video titled “Borrego Stardance.” It shows off lovely views of the night sky along with the sculptures. Heffernan recommends watching the video in HD with headphones on and the volume up, and we’d have to agree.
