Crank up the volume and watch this in full screen mode.
This video captures the sunrise annular solar eclipse from 3 locations in the Pilbara, Western Australia, May 10, 2013.
Cameras were placed at the south west, north west limits and centreline. 3 Canon 5DmkII + 800 mm timelapse at each location and Canon 1DC + 2000 mm 4K video in the north.
A big thanks to Geoff Sims for setting up the south camera, collaborating on site location, transporting lenses and eclipse timing/position calculations.
Thanks also to Peter Nanasi for providing the lovely original score at short notice.

Another in a series of time lapse videos, this one focusing on Lake Tahoe.
We recommend that you kill the lights, click on “full screen,” and turn up the volume.
Simply stunning and beautiful imagery.

Hopefully we will have a beautiful day to enjoy.

So what do you do when your up in the International Space Station and are hungry?
You make a peanut butter and honey sandwich, of course.
If you wonder how that happens, Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield demonstrates.

There are people who manage to run a blog via a cell phone or something like a seven inch tablet.
We are not one of those people. It is simply not a skill set that we have.
No one locally seems to have the part we need (70 mm X 15 mm, 4 pin CPU fan) so we aren’t posting much.

Inspired by an optical illusion he had seen elsewhere, Tom Interval of the Houdini Museum created this illusion using the likeness of the great Harry Houdini.
When you look at it, the question “is Houdini looking at you or to the right?”
We like it.
