              This project as it’s name indicates “descry” the life of a young Chilean Astronomer, PhD from CALTECH who lives in New Mexico under the shades of giant telescopes, to get a closer look, a glimpse to what is seen/unseen in the distance. His research based in Blazars, the brightest objects on space that allow us to find super massive Black Holes will be revealed in a brief look to his daily work routine. One that seems tedious and not very rewarding. This project would not have been possible without the collaboration of: Christine Pulliam CfA Public Affairs Office, from CfA Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. Dan Clemens, Mr. Quinn Sykes and Profesor Alan Marscher from Boston University Astronomy Department. Nicolás Bustos from the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Paranal, Chile. Christina Hunt, Emerson Post-production department for sound mixing. OVRO Telescope, CA.

                  • Spectrum of a Sporadic Meteor

                    Finally I capture my first meteor spectrum. The technique was simply fit a diffraction grating of 100 lines/mm in front of the camera lens, I regulate the lens with focus distance of 8mm so that the spectrum is broadened as possible and UFOCapture software was used to acquire images. Luckily I got the record of a sporadic meteor bright enough to capture their emission lines, has not yet analyzed the spectrum (blue is closer to the meteor and red at the opposite end).

                      An experiment in creating art from science data. The video is made from 961 images taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) ( http://sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov/ ) from 2014-02-18 to 2014-02-28. I made the basic video with JHelioviewer, a visualization tool for solar image data ( http://www.jhelioviewer.org/ ) and used PowerDirector for the final editing. The original images are courtesy of NASA/SDO and the AIA, EVE, and HMI science teams. The music is "Frozen Star" by Kevin McLeod ( http://incompetech.com/ ).

                      What are Tags?


                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
