        • Selene's Theme (moon's video)


          from Jose Manuel Perez Added 178 8 6

          I composed this song a few years ago. I took this movie of the moon on September 14, 2013 with a SkyWatcher Dobson 8 telescope and a webcam . As the musical theme is titled Selene's Theme, I found it appropriate for this video. :) Compuse este tema hace algunos años y me pareció apropiado para acompañar unas imágenes de la luna que grabé el 14 de septiembre de 2013 con un telescopio SkyWatcher Dobson 8 y una webcam.

            • A Breathtaking View of the Milky Way from La Palma


              from Randy Hoffmann Added 2,861 44 8

              This short film is my first attempt at celestial / Milky Way photography and consists of four time-lapse sequences, two shot per night. Sky conditions were favourable with no moon and minimal turbulence. The only drawback was the orange glow near the horizon in the direction of the Caldera caused by the Calima phenomenon. Weather conditions were tolerable with light winds and cool temperatures. The view of the Milky Way was breathtaking. The growing intensity of the Perseid Meteor Shower as seen especially in the fourth sequence near morning twilight was certainly a treat. Shooting these celestial timelapses took a lot of planning and patience.

The Island of La Palma is beautiful in all aspects. It's a great place to hike and perfect for viewing and photographing the heavens.

                • Spacecraft - A B.Arch Thesis


                  from Kyle Schumann Added 221 1 0

                  Spacecraft is a B.Arch thesis about opposites of scale: scales of space, scales of program, scales of time. Taking the form of an astronomical observatory and a house for a watchmaker, Spacecraft is located in the gorges of Treman State Park in Ithaca, New York. Spacecraft reveals commonalities between watchmaking and astronomy through the mechanistic qualities of the instruments involved but also through the act of seeing. At opposing scales, the watchmaker towers over his creations, peering down through a loupe, while the astronomer places her eye to the end of a massive telescope and gazes upwards into the heavens. One counts time in fractions of a second while the other counts in aeons. The siting of Spacecraft within the orthogonally cut rocks of the gorge provides a way for one to immediately see the sublime age of the Earth in the layers of exposed rock. Through the understanding of the age of the Earth in the site and the age of the cosmos through the astronomical observatory, one is able to better understand his or her place in the world. The gorge is a sublime locale for the comprehension of sublime scales, and Spacecraft is the instrument which facilitates this understanding. The program is distributed in layers with the roof (ground) level consisting of an astronomical garden which links into the existing trail system along the edge of the gorge. The level below is the public observatory and exhibition space. The watchmaker lives privately in the lowest level. Much like the keeper of a lighthouse, he maintains the observatory, the instrument he calls home. Spacecraft questions how we can begin to locate ourselves within the world as well as locate our place within the universe. The effects of not only studying but also designing at multiple scales have universal and sublime effects on works of architecture.
