ISS Startrails

Post by chrismalin » Thu Oct 18, 2012 10:32 am



Remember 1982's "TRON" movie? The plot: A computer programmer (epic: Jeff Bridges) is digitized inside the software world of a mainframe computer, where he interacts with various programs in his attempt to get back out. Including light cycle races and strange solar wind ships...
Back in the real word the ISS is in a way one of these solar ships, constantly rotating around us. A tiny white spot, as it can be seen racing over the sky from time to time, when illuminated by the sunset (and sunrise ;).

This Video was achived by "stacking" image sequences provided by NASA from the Crew at International Space Station. These "stacks" create the Star Trails, but furthermore make interesting patterns visible. For example lightning corridors within clouds, but they also show occasional satellite tracks (or Iridium Flashes) as well as meteors - patterns that interrupt the main Star Trails, and thus are immediately visible. After the initial stacking, all images have been sequenced with Apple Motion and the Video cut and edited with Final Cut Pro X. Stacked with the StarStaX app, get it here: markus-enzweiler.de/software/software.html

The many oversaturated hot pixels in some of the scenes are the inevitable result of high ISO settings the Nikon D3s in ISS-use are pushed to for keeping exposure times short (owed to the dramatic speed the ISS travels). As there are no dark frames or RAW data currently available, hot pixels are not easy to remove.

All sequences and images courtesy "The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth", Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center, eol.jsc.nasa.gov/Videos/CrewEarthObservationsVideos/
Closing sequence © Christoph Malin / ESO.org / filmed at Cerro Paranal.

All the best,
Christoph Malin

PS: At about 1:42 Comet "Lovejoy" is rising...

With aurora season kicking off again in the northern hemisphere, here is a look back at one of the best Aurora Storms from a nine week extreme astronomy adventure in the Yukon, Canada in early 2012.

Timelapse footage captured with Canon 5D Mark II (*2) with 14mm and 24mm lenses, Canon 1100D (aka Rebel T3) with 10-22mm lens and Canon 5D with 8mm Fisheye lens. Motion control with a custom controller by Fred Vanderhaven and a Vixen Polarie. Temperature around -20C (-5F) but thankfully not much wind.

Aside from the fisheye footage, which was running autonomously at 'home', all of these sequences were captured from Annie Lake Road, south of Whitehorse, the capital of the Yukon, on the 14th February. The Aurora was visible even before twilight had ended, and the storm was active for several hours and frequently held me spellbound with its brightness and fast movement.

Enjoy!

After spending a weekend playing with the raw frames, I ended up with this timelapse video of the Total Solar Eclipse 13/14 Nov 2012 which shows almost all the sequence. Please allow HD or Full HD versions to enjoy all the details of the timelapse. I hope you like it:

VENUS 2012

Leading up to the 2012 Transit of Venus, our sister planet made several stunning conjunctions in the evening sky. Close encounters with Jupiter, the Moon, Pleiades, and our own Sun are all paired with the incredible backdrop of the iconic Flatirons of Boulder, Colorado and the mountains of the Continental Divide.

I had an incredible time making this compilation. I spent many frigid nights out in the field with my camera following the action above and many days planning angles and elevations for pointing the telescopes at the proper mountain peaks. After the Transit, I had intended on following the action as Venus became the Morning Star, but I quickly realized how unmotivated I am in the morning...

High resolution view of totality with close-ups of second and third contact. A lucky outcome of an image sequence going wrong!

Very fast solar prominence time-lapse with Daystar h-alpha filter (look in HD) :D

Image

The timelapse represent a close up portion of the sun of 30 July with the evolution of a fast prominence during half hour of observation. Images taken with a 100 ed refractor using a Daystar h-alpha filter at a focal of 2300mm.

Given the very fast nature of the phenomenon I preferred to use intervals of 30 seconds to 30 seconds of capture, so having one frame every minute, maybe I could shorten it further but the seeing was not so good and I wanted to gather more data to obtain better images.

Hello,
I have made a 2min 46sec timelapse of the Geminids event as seen from different locations on the VLT telescopes platform collecting 27 hours of continuous shooting (almost 2400 pictures in total) leaving my Canon 5D Mark III (equipped with a Samyang 14mm f2.8) outside on the telescopes platform acquiring the frames while I was UT4 Night Astronomer.

Put your earphones and watch in HD :D

NOTES:
- At 1:07 in the upper part of the scene, in the center, a huge meteor explodes leaving red smoke moving toward the right (East)
- At 2:00 huge meteor explodes above UT1 (just on the left of the dome)
- At 2:15 you can see the ISS transiting above Paranal from the right toward the upper center (West-East)

Soundtrack: "Infinite Ocean", Ghost (2011), The Devin Townsend Project, InsideOut Music

Hope you enjoy it.

Time lapse video showing a Geminid meteor and its persistent train decaying in the atmosphere over approximately 12 minutes. The meteor flash occurred at 3:11 am local time in Leyburn, Queensland, Australia.

Each frame of this 15 frames per second video represents 10 seconds of elapsed time, so this entire video shows 15 minutes of elapsed time.

The three bright stars in the top-left corner are Phi Ori, Meissa, and HIP 26215. The field of view is approximately 11 x 6 degrees in the Orion constellation, approximately 6 degrees north of Betelgeuse.

Sunset & Sunrise
Korea. 2009~2012.

Kwon, O Chul (TWAN)

“One day,” you said to me, “I saw the sunset forty-four times!”
And a little later you added:
“You know– one loves the sunset, when one is so sad. . . ”
“Were you so sad, then?” I asked, “on the day of the forty-four sunsets?”
But the little prince made no reply.

- The little prince.
