    A 4 minute preview of the 20 minute ‘Jangurna Story’ – a 4k fulldome movie exploring an indigenous story of the night sky around the Gascoyne region of Western Australia. This story – concerning ‘Jangurna’ (The Emu) has been told by community elder Stella Tittums to the historian Mary Ann Jebb – the recording provides the narrative soundtrack. The story is illustrated by an initial astronomical simulation and then segues into an extraordinary series of scenes shot around the Gascoyne Region of Western Australia, using natural sound environments, recorded in situ. This is an immersive, meditative movie that attempts to impart the sense of the natural environment, encouraging the viewer to discover Jangurna, as she rises in the night sky. The movie was shot during a 12,000km 3 month voyage that took me and my film crew (Chris Henderson and Sally Hildred) from Hobart (Tasmania), across the Nullarbor, to Perth (Western Australia), and then around the Gascoyne, camping all the way. We filmed the night skies, dusks and dawns, amidst the magnificent arid landscapes of Carnarvon, Quobba, Exmouth, Ningaloo, Mandu Mandu and many others. We travelled by 4-wheel-drive into remote areas in the blazing heat of the summer season, walking many kilometers with our self-built and designed 4k timelapse fulldome systems. Besides battling heat, dust, flies and amazing thunderstorms, we endured two cyclones and major bushfires. Things were a little difficult at times. Location sound was recorded at each environment. The project generated many terabytes of ultra-high-resolution fulldome content. Many scenes were shot in HDR. The cinematography then went through extensive image processing and compositing at iVEC@UWA and in my studios in Hobart. Needless to say, it required a prodigious amount of compute resources to process the data and conform it for the final edit. A huge amount of work, and I think it shows. The next one in this 'genre' will be better, now that the methodology is sorted: we had to invent a lot of things. A 6-minute edition of the movie runs on permanent exhibition at Gwoonwardu Mia, the Gascoyne Aboriginal Heritage and Cultural Centre, Western Australia, in a 4m dome environment. The exhibition ‘Burlganyja Wanggaya’ (‘Old People Talking’) of which it is part, was opened by the Premier of Western Australia, Hon. Colin Barnett, on June 8th, 2012. The full 20-minute version is available via www.petermorse.com.au, details upon request.

        We are now getting a nice view of planet Venus through the LASCO C3 instrument on NASA/ESA's SOHO spacecraft. The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) has two coronagraphs onboard. With coronagraphs, the Sun is being blocked by an occulting disk, seen here in blue, so that SOHO can observe the much fainter features in the Sun's corona. The actual size of the Sun is represented by the white disk. In this video here you can see Planet Mercury moving towards the edge of the frame while Venus is moving into the frame and towards the Sun. In just a few days Venus will disappear behind that occulting disk and NASA SDO will pick up the Venus transit on June 5/6. You can watch the Venus Transit on the NASA Venus Transit website: http://VenusTransit.gsfc.nasa.gov/ Credit: NASA / ESA SOHO
