The Sagan Series is an amazing project by Reid Gower in honor of the late Carl Sagan, the astronomer/cosmologist/astrophysicist. The project is simple, create short videos and add narration by Mr. Sagan (the narration of the above video is from his book Pale Blue Dot ). The outcome is just great.
Videos are being released every couple of weeks and you can keep track of them on The Sagan Series website. [Link]
The geoid is the surface of an ideal global ocean in the absence of tides and currents, shaped only by gravity. It is a crucial reference for measuring ocean circulation, sea-level change and ice dynamics – all affected by climate change.
Yesterday’s eclipse was the first one since 1638 to coincide with the winter solstice, otherwise known as the longest night of the year.
This video manages to squeeze an almost 6 hour event into a 2 minute video.
Also I found a really cool photo of the eclipse.
Independence Day and District 9 come to mind when you see this image. Is it a real UFO? This “halo” appeared over Moscow on Wedensday, at first many thought it was a digitally altered image, but meteorlogists confirmed it was not. It turned out to be a cloud formation even though it looked perfectly shaped. Check out the video below. link
