APOD: Timelapse: Aurora, SAR, and the Way... (2024 Jun 26)

Post by APOD Robot » Wed Jun 26, 2024 4:05 am

Image Timelapse: Aurora, SAR, and the Milky Way

Explanation: What's happening in the sky this unusual night? Most striking in the featured 4.5-hour 360-degree panoramic video, perhaps, is the pink and purple aurora. That's because this night, encompassing May 11, was famous for its auroral skies around the world. As the night progresses, auroral bands shimmer, the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy rises, and stars shift as the Earth rotates beneath them. Captured here simultaneously is a rare red band running above the aurora: a SAR arc, seen to change only slightly. The flashing below the horizon is caused by passing cars, while the moving spots in the sky are satellites and airplanes. The featured video was captured from Xinjiang, China with four separate cameras.

Is the music really by Claude Debussy?

Here, it uses Clair de lune. But in APOD, the music is different. Can anyone tell me which piece it is exactly?

No, but the "License" link points to https://plus.ibaotu.com/details?id=771024, which plays the music in this APOD, but the site is in inscrutable (to me) Chinese (I think). My browser failed to translate it at all, and google translate wasn't much better, but the site seems to be a library of short independently created pieces of music for use either for free or perhaps purchase (I couldn't tell).

Honestly, that doesn't sound like Claude Debussy at all!

Right. It's not. Maybe it's supposed to be "inspired by" or "based on a theme by" Debussy, but I'm not enough of a classical music connoisseur to be able to recognize it.

No. We apologize for confusion about the music. It was changed out due to copyright concerns. The text on the main NASA APOD has now been changed to credit the newly attached music. - RJN
