Wadda Hoot! Although once the green showed up looking like a somewhat goulish face, i couldn't stop seeing it, even at the end. I guess I'll have to come back in a day or so(if i remember). Maybe I'll have forgotten the face by then.
Asterisk is now accepting submissions of videos for each week's APODs. I've put together a few with the hope that others will see these, think "oh, I can do that!!" and then do so! The best submitted video will be linked to from APOD. I've used up about every trick I know in iMovie and look forward to submissions from you! (Please!!) Thanks!

Edited to add (and wow, am I sorry I hadn't included this earlier; this is from here, and yes, I feel like a bonehead for not having posted this initially):
Please create a video using these APOD images! I've done acouple or three just to prime the pump, but I KNOW some dozen or more of you reading this can do a better job than I! The best submitted video will be linked to from APOD. (Make your mother proud!!) Submitted videos must attribute the images as shown in APOD; please also credit any additional elements, such as music, and secure copyright permissions or use that which is in the public domain. We encourage the use of original music and your own performance of music out of copyright. Yes, your garage band playing an original song or your musical child and/or your favorite music teacher playing something old would make a GREAT soundtrack! (Imagine how thrilled they would be to see their names in the credits!) You can submit a video by placing a link to it in this thread.

Hi dear friends, I would like to share with all of you ly last Time Lapse Photography.
In this Time Lapse taken during the night at 15-03-11 between 22h32 and 01h31, in Fonte-de-Telha, Portugal, in a small pine forest near the Atlantic Ocean, we could apreciate the motion of many stars from Pleiades and Perseus Constellation, as well as, Castor and Pollux, Procyon and even Regulus. The bright light of the Moon is well visible in the end of the movie. It is also impressive the the dynamic motion in diferent layers of clouds in formation. http://vimeo.com/21100445
This short animation shows the expansion of M1 (Crab Nebula), from the explosion of the Supernova in 1054 AD untill recent days. The image was taken on November 14th 2010 by Niki Petrov and Yanko Nikolov at NAO Rozhen with 2m RCC telescope. Watching this video in HD mode is recommended. Clicking, holding and then dragging with the left mouse button over the video progress area (while playing the video) will give you an interactive possibility to see the nebula's changing size for any given year from 1054 untill 2010 AD. Regards Emil
Dear forum, this is my first Full-HD time-lapse, composed using about 4000 shots, taken from Italian Appennines, about 40 km North of Genoa.
The images are from the latest new Moon expedition with some friends, mainly astrophotographers, and a single visual observer with his new 60 cm Dobsonian (wow!). We got two good night, the first was not perfect, with veils, but the second was really dark for our standards, reaching 21.6 mag/arcsec^2. Between the two nights there is a little plus, that let you understand better the "job" of field astrophotographers. Look...
Links to my homepage: * standard version, 720p, embedded Youtube: http://comolli.zapto.org/110401.htm * experimental version, 1080p, embedded Youtube: http://comolli.zapto.org/110401hd.htm This YT 1080p version need to be manually forced, so click on "720p" and select "1080p". Moreover you'll need a big display and a powerful pc and bandwidth to look without problems.
My advice is to look at FULL SCREEN, with the highest resolution 1080p, and with the AUDIO ON!
Hahaha, such an abrupt transition between "serious business" at night with the sombre piano music and the Benny Hill theme song during the day. But where's the labels for the daytime? What's that on your plate?!
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

Thanks geckzilla! The red dishes are obviously the preferred lunch dish in Italy: pasta al pomodoro! Quite huge portions There are a few labels during daytime, such as breakfast, washing, relax, discussion, lunch, telescope preparation. Can you see them? (lower-left corner) Regards, Lorenzo
