Each year, millions of visitors flock to the Grand Canyon to witness its magnitude and sheer, awe-inspiring size. However, there's a phenomenon that few people get to experience that's called “cloud inversion.” Filmmaker and co-founder of the Skyglow Project, Harun Mehmedinovic says, “In what resembles something between ocean waves and fast clouds, the Grand Canyon is completely obscured by fog, making the visitors feel as if they are walking on clouds.” Kaibob Elegy is a part of Skyglow's quest to explore the effects of light pollution on our wild spaces, and damn, it's incredible.
