1. NASA SDO - Fall Eclipse Season, September 6, 2012


    from Camilla Corona Added 85 0 0

    September 6, 2012, marks the first day of the SDO Fall Eclipse Season. From now until September 29, 2012 planet Earth moves through the field of view of NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory's telescopes. Eclipses happen near the solstices when the Sun, Earth, and the SDO orbit come into alignment. They are a normal part of life with a geosynchronous observatory. Because SDO is in an inclined orbit the eclipse season is not centered on the solstice. The September 6, 2012 eclipse was 8 minutes and 15 seconds only. Over the next few days they will grow to over 1 hour long. Credit: NASA SDO

        from Ott Planetarium Added 377 3 1

        The moon phases segment from "This is Our Sky!" The Earth-Moon visualization is shown to scale in terms of size and distance. The moon's orbit is traced with a green line to aid the viewer in following that tiny pixel. After a time, the Moon "inflates" to allow detailed visualization of its phases as it orbits Earth. The phases of the Moon are also shown from an Earthbound perspective. "This is Our Sky!" is a general astronomy show that targets 3rd grade, with elements of interest spanning Preschool to 6th Grade. Join Luna and her friends for an exploration of the sky, seasons, moon phases, constellations, and planets. Ott Planetarium in association with Weber State University College of Science and Department of Physics presents THIS IS OUR SKY! written and directed by Ron & AmyJo Proctor produced by Ron & AmyJo Proctor executive producer Dr. Stacy Palen starring Emmy Beecher Sophie Beecher Kaylee Graham Sami Graham Ava Ingalsbe Tucker Inglefield Rigel Proctor and Murielle Parkinson as Luna with music from Jewel Beat - jewelbeat.com 3d visual effects by Blender - blender.org

          • One Hour of Solar Chromosphere Timelapse in H-alpha


            from Backyard Astronomy Added

            Even if the seeing was terrible I wanted to test my new solar "observatory" and decided to follow for an hour the biggest filament around NOAA 1538-1539-1540. Unfortunately only after I stopped it exploded with a flare, here the animation I could build where you can see few activites on the ferment surface. I used a Daystar filter on a Vixen ED100SF with the Baader TZ-4 and a Celestron reducer to keep the equivalent focal lenght around 1400mm; movie timelapse of 1 hour of real time, with lapse of 1-2 minutes to take enough data even the bad seeing, captured on a Chameleon mono.

              • Reflections on Life


                from Frank Gregorio Added 1,816 25 1

                In 2008, famed Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson was asked by Time Magazine to cite what he considered the most astounding fact he ever learned about the universe. His reply focused on the interconnectedness of all life on Earth to each other and to the rest of the universe, through our shared chemistry. It was eloquent, beautiful and pointed out a truth that I felt deserved some special video treatment. This is that video, mastered in HD to dramatic music and Dr. Tyson's narration. It is not the only video available here on this topic, but I hope you (and your students) enjoy my version of it. Please rate this video and feel free to comment. If you like it, please help me spread the word by posting links to it and my channel on your social media websites. The more students who can enjoy these dramatic videos, the better! I wish to thank all the quality video and music producers whose postings enabled me to assemble this video for educational use. To best enjoy this video, darken the room, and turn your speakers up as loud as practical. The music and narration are dramatic and will enhance your viewing pleasure!

                  from Remiel Added 62 1 2

                  On August 21, 2012, I competed once again at Write Club San Francisco. My randomly assigned, arbitrary topic was "Width" (vs. Length). This is me reading my piece entitled "Silver" — the story of a celestial faceoff so recklessly edited if I had read the title I would have gone over time. You'll have to watch to find out if I won. (Spoiler alert: I won.)
