1. Solar System


    from Lisa Poje Added 6,196 182 6

    I set up this solar system in AE. It covers one earth year. I plan on eventually expanding this into a tour of of solar system, complete with statistics, facts and figures, and much more detail.

        • Binary Star Reflections


          from Karina Mitchell Added 160 3 4

          "If, on the contrary, two stars should really be situated very near each other, and at the same time so far insulated as not to be materially affected by the attractions of neighbouring stars, they will then compose a separate system, and remain united by the bond of their own mutual gravitation towards each other." ~Sir William Herschel on binary stars The binary stars of Eta Carinae and Canopus were documented as part of the aboriginal Australian Boorong people's mythical astronomy and incorporated into their oral traditions. This short animated work is a non-linear poetic reflection on these mysteries, as well as a tribute to future discoveries.

          • The Explorers - Trailer


            from Kai Staats Added

            We live in an incredible time. This decade alone will see the upheaval and reconstitution of what we believe about the universe. At the same time science is bringing us into a more comprehensive understanding of the cosmos, school age children often lack that spark of the imagination which sets in motion a life-long passion for learning about the world around them. A single night with a telescope often opens one’s mind for a lifetime. When a spec of light instead shows rings, moons, or a glowing tail, the world becomes a much bigger place. What’s more, Astronomy naturally leads to questions about the origins of life and interest in Chemistry, Biology, and Physics as we question our place in the universe and how it all began. This film moves to capture the passion which all astronomers share, those conducting research or those simply gazing at the stars. The Explorers is a journey into the joy of learning motivated by looking into the night sky and asking, “Why?” Slated for completion in September 2013, The Explorers will be more than two years in production with footage and interviews acquired in the Adirondacks of New York, University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth; Arizona State University's School of Earth and Space Exploration; NASA Ames, California; at 14,000 feet on Hawaii's Mauna Kea; in rural Tanzania; Cape Town and Sutherland, South Africa.

                  • An Eclipse Chasing Time-Lapse Journal


                    from JIA HAO Added 6,904 162 35

                    An annular solar eclipse swept across Australia on May 10, 2013. Together with 4 other fellow Malaysian astronomy hobbyists, we embarked on a road trip in Western Australia to chase the eclipse at it's best - a sunrise "ring of fire". 16 days, 4000km+ of road travel, the trip covered some of the most deserted and most beautiful places of Western Australia. Despite the unstable weather, we were blessed with an unforgettably jaw-dropping "ring of fire", mesmerisingly colourful moments when the sun dipped to the vast, flat Indian Ocean, and joyful nights when the milky way shined at its full glory far away from city lights. This 5-minute-long video documents the entire trip in the form of time-lapse, including mostly my humble and amateurish attempts on day-to-night holy-grail transitions. Dolly movements and HDR techniques were used in certain footages. Few daytime footages were taken due to time constraints. Special thanks to a Malaysian friend of mine for kindly lending his Canon 16-35 lens to me. Overall the footages can't really do justice to the real scenes we saw, and some truly amazing photo-opporutunities were ruined by wet weather. Anyways one needs to be physically there to enjoy the best of a solar eclipse, and, this beautiful state of Australia. Enjoy! Equipments and Software: - Canon 5D Mark II x 2 - Canon EF16-35mm f/2.8L II USM - Canon EF70-200mm f/4L IS USM - Canon EF50mm f/1.4 USM - Canon EF15mm f/2.8 Fisheye - Dynamic Perception Stage-One Dolly System for motion control - GBTimelapse for bulb-ramping control Musics: (both are royalty-free and licensed under Creative Common LIcense) - mindthings - Human Feelings (http://www.jamendo.com/en/track/96702/human-feelings) - Sky & Clouds - Gyro Experiment 1 (http://www.jamendo.com/en/track/512205/gyro-experiment-1)
