      Yeah a lot of words in the subject. View in 1080P and full screen, and you can see transiting satellites. Shot with my Nikon D800E. Do video editing other than music by: Carly Comando "Everyday" Excuse the one hot pixel. Video was shot at a 6400 ISO so there is one or 2 because it is unedited.

        Simulation of the environment around GRB 020819B based on new observations with ALMA. The GRB occurred in an arm of a galaxy in the constellation of Pisces. GRBs are huge explosions of a star spouting high-speed jets in a direction toward the observer. The ALMA observations revealed that GRB 020819B is likely to have been generated in an environment surrounded by dust-rich star-forming regions where many new stars are born.

        • Star of Bethlehem - Introduction

          "Introduction" is a short motion-graphics movie introduction taken from the full length documentary The Star of Bethlehem. "For thousands of years, countless generations have been captivated by the story of how the stars foretold the coming of Christ. And it has been difficult to see how the scientific and historical clues fit together…until now." The challenge for Vidano Films was to adapt Mr. Larson's research and stage presentation to the screen in a way that would carry the same amount of "emotional punch" while conveying a large amount of analysis and data. In the end we realized that part of "the story" needed to include Mr. Larson's turbulent journey as he sought to discover the truth about the star. With the help of Julie Larson's beautiful, heart-warming score, The Star of Bethlehem has been seen by literally millions, and has come alive in new and refreshing ways to people all around the world. THE STORY: It’s an astronomical mystery. A strange star is claimed to have appeared at the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. This documentary is an investigation of the story found in the Biblical Gospel of Matthew. It brings the words of Roman and Jewish historians alongside the visions of ancient prophets. It mixes “modern” mathematicians with murderous turmoil in the Roman imperial court. It combines all these with astronomical facts. And it concludes that the star was a real event. What others are saying... "A convincing case...a mystery solved” Former Director, NASA Dryden Flight Research Center "This explanation of the Star is compelling...” NASA's Chief Engineer for the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station "Well-researched and reasonable” Former Chief of Planetary Astronomy, NASA, and Technical Editor, Sky & Telescope magazine "Wide-ranging and insightful scholarship” President, American Association for the Advancement of Science

              The rotating sky in timelapse motion. Time-exposure sequences display how stars are rotating around the north celestial pole, marked by the north star Polaris, a constant motion caused by the Earth rotation. From the beginning to end the scenes are filmed in the Alborz Mountains of Iran (the ancient tower), Mono Lake (California), La Palma (Canary Islands, the scene of night sky only), Yosemite National Park (California), Mt. Damavand in Iran (the spectacular snow-covered volcano), Lapland in northern Sweden (the aurora trailing scene). The footage is available to license in high quality full HD1080p (or larger).
