A very pleasing experimental 4k CGI short by Maxim Zhestkov exploring the nature of the Universe formed by coalescing matter thrown out by exploding stars. To wit:
Everything around and inside us was conceived in a huge explosion of a star billions of years ago… and, probably, recycled from other matrices myriad times. In this eternal carousel of matter, particles gather, form complicated structures and then burst into all directions fusing atoms together and producing new elements and points of view, new colours and patterns of perception.
I was looking for a One4All card, and when I checked out the design options on their website I noticed that my own star sign is not an option, along with five others — at least for online buyers…Astrological discrimination by An Post?
Some of the world’s oldest living trees ((in Botswana, Namibia and South Africa) photographed against the backdrop of the night sky by Beth Moon, who sez:
The majority of these photographs were created during moonless nights, shot with a wide angle lens and ISO of 3200 – 6400. The Milky Way, a ribbon of stars that stretches from horizon to horizon burns brightly in some of the images. Exposures up to 30 seconds allowed enough light to enter the lens without noticeable star movement. Each location required a lot of experimenting. and different lighting techniques. Sometimes a short burst of diffused light from a flashlight was sufficient, or bounced light from multiple flashlights was used for a softer more natural glow.
