Moonrise behind the Sacré Cœur basilica in Paris

IG :

Hello here is a timelapse I made of the full moon rising behind the Sacré Cœur basilica in Paris.

The Moon looks particularly big because the picture was taken at 11km distance with a 600mm lens. You can see the turbulence of the air due to this distance. I had to stabilize the timelapse because the turbulences were so important that the image was shifted by 30% in all directions...

I used the same settings from the beginning to the end because I was too afraid to touch the camera and completely off center the sacred heart. The pictures were taken on November 9th.

Settings : ISO-800 - F/6.3 - 1/30 sec
Equipment : Canon 750D - Tamron 150-600mm

Timelape: The Exploding Crab Nebula
Timelapse video URL:

It is rare and exciting to see any changes in astronomical objects outside of our solar system. However, incredibly, this time lapse animation is two images taken exactly 13 years apart. Clearly visible is the expansion of the red glowing filaments of ionized helium and hydrogen, as well as the swirling blue-white cloudy material illuminated by synchrotron radiation. Also note the proper motion movement of the yellow-orange star in the lower left corner of the image. Many more details including animations and annotations available here.

Lunar Eclipse in Tokyo

On the evening of 2022-11-08 I successfully observed and photographed the total Lunar eclipse from the capital of Japan.
This eclipse had a once-in-a-lifetime speciality as during the event the Moon was conjugating with planet Uranus. And by viewing it in East-Asia, the Moon passed in front of the planet, so there was a Uranus-eclipse by the eclipsed Moon.
The photos were taken in every 15 minutes. Watch in HD! :)

An ion tail disconnection event captured in a 3-hour time lapse of comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF). 360x 30-second images integrated 10 at a time into 36x 5-minute frames. Captured with RASA 8, ASI2600MC Pro, IDAS LPS-D3 filter, and riding on an Avalon Instruments M-Due in the Big Rock Observatory in Duvall, WA, USA

The last seconds of sunset
The last seconds of sunset - the last flashes of yellow, green, blue light line the horizon like pearls!
How does the sun disappear in the last few seconds of sunset? On the evening of January 31, I saw this wonderful sunset on Hehuan Mountain, which is 3,000 meters high. When the sun has fallen below the horizon, we can continue to see sunlight refracted from below the horizon because of atmospheric refraction. In the last few seconds, when there is only one line of sunlight left, because of the different refractive indices of various colors of light, we can see different colors of light—yellow, green, and blue are arranged on that line like pearls! In the last 1 second, they disappeared one by one in front of the camera. First, the yellow light with the smallest refractive index disappears, then the green light, and the blue light with the largest refractive index disappears last. Because the intensity of blue light is the weakest, and the eyes are more sensitive to yellow-green light, so the naked eye could only see a green light disappearing in the sky. What was left at the end was the cheers of everyone who saw the magical green light with their own eyes!
The first section of the film shows the last 28 seconds of sunset, and the second section shows the last 8 seconds of sunset in slow motion. How the pearls of different colors disappear can be seen more clearly in the video.

Complete moonrise video at real time.
If this video is too long, you can edit for make it shorter for social media channels :)

Full moon at 100% 🌕

Setting up the platform for Jeff to spin on the mountain was the most challenging setup I've ever done for the moon crazyness - it was an absolute madness bc it weight is 200kg!

Kind thanks guys!

Only 2.4% of Illuminated Venus Rise
Photo description:
Venus, which shines brightly in the western sky at dusk in the first half of the year, has passed between the earth and the sun. And it becomes the "morning star" that appears in the eastern sky before sunrise. Here's a video of Venus rising on August 20, played at 4x speed. The apparent diameter of Venus is 56.7 arcseconds, and the illuminated part is only 2.4%, so it looks like an ultra-thin small crescent moon!
Because Venus is currently very close to the sun, it was originally worried that the sky would be too bright to observe. Unexpectedly, Venus is so powerful that I caught it breaking through the eastern clouds ten minutes before sunrise! After that, I continued to observe it until half an hour after sunrise, and recorded its moving track and video. Watching this tiny moon slowly rise and disappear in the gray sky is really fascinating.

Dispersion of Venus
When celestial objects are just rising or setting, the rays of light they emit or reflect from sunlight, as they pass through the Earth's atmosphere, undergo refraction and separation into different colors, creating the "dispersion phenomenon." The colors at the upper edge of these celestial objects can range from blue, green to purple, while the colors at the lower edge are almost always red.
Recently, Venus in the eastern sky just before sunrise was very close to Earth, with a small phase and a large apparent diameter. The dispersion phenomenon was quite apparent when it was low on the horizon. The two video segments were recorded with a 24-minute interval and put together for comparison. It's clear that in the first segment, Venus had a lower altitude, making the dispersion phenomenon very noticeable. In the second segment, Venus's altitude had risen to about 13 degrees, and the dispersion phenomenon was much less pronounced!

Movement of the Airglow in front of the milky way, White Desert (time laps )

An atmospheric emission of light known as airglow, also known as nightglow, occurs on planets. Even if the impacts of starlight and diffused sunlight from the far side are eliminated, the night sky on Earth never truly darkens due to this optical phenomenon.

While we’re waiting to see if comet Nishimura survived perihelion, here’s an animation of actual image stacks placed into a CG environment, to give you the sense of flying with it for 2 weeks.

If its felt that too much “artistic license” was taken on placing/sizing depicted elements, I could try for an updated version, but not sure it will be as nice.

Images were taken in my backyard with a Meade LX200 10" F6 SCT and ASI 533 camera. Processed using Astro Pixel Processor, Startools, and GIMP. Rendered in Unity.
