ENGLISH:

Randy Halverson: If you have ever been in a wide open landscape the most interesting thing isn’t necessarily the landscape itself, but what you see coming over the horizon. Growing up in South Dakota the landscape itself can be beautiful at times, but that doesn’t compare to what the sky can do, especially at night. Combine that with the landscape, and it makes for great photo opportunities. More information and stills at dakotalapse.com/2013/06/horizons/ You can purchase the entire 30 minute film as a download here – http://dakotalapse.com/2013/06/horizons-feature/

Horizons from Randy Halverson on Vimeo.

ROMANIAN:

Va anunt de la inceput ca muzica, care de obicei e foarte faina la acest gen de video nu mi-a placut de loc, iti atrage atentia de la video, in loc sa ajute la vizionare, asa ca daca nu va place nici voua reduceti sunetul la player si ENJOY.

De curând, Randy Halverson, un fotograf cunoscut pentru lucrările sale în care surprinde calea lactee, a creat unul dintre cele mai bune timelapse-uri de până acum, unul în timpul căruia este imposibil să te plictiseşti. Timelapse-ul nu surprinde numai cerul, ci îl integrează pe acesta în peisaje superbe precum câmpuri de flor, pajişti etc. More information and stills at dakotalapse.com/2013/06/horizons/

Psalm 92:5 How great are Your works, O LORD!

Photographer Bevan Percival loves to chase ” fleeting moments of damatic light on beautiful landscapes and also capturing the night sky and milky way in all it’s glory”. And how does he get spectacular footage like this (it takes hundreds of hours to make a time lapse of just a few minutes and several thousands of frames)? Percival says he  does this by „curling up out under the stars beside all the gear for whole nights at a time catching some sleep here and there between checking the gear and changing batteries and staring up into eternity with spectacular meteors burning up in the cosmic shore out the corner of your eye.

The result is simply breathtaking. For myself, I see the fingerprint of God all over the place.

In Awe of God’s Creation – A spectacular time lapse video of the EARTH – Un video extraordinar de la NASA cu pamantul nostru

earth pamantul

I can watch a hundred of these videos and never lose my awe for the breathtaking views of the earth. And it always reminds me of breathtaking Scriptures. Today it reminds me of Jeremiah 32:17:

Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.”

See the United States at the 1:30 minute mark. See Italy at the 2:20 minute mark.Then photos sweep over the UK and Europe.

Time-Lapse | Earth from Bruce W. Berry Jr on Vimeo.

All Time-lapse sequences were taken by the astronaunts onboard the International Space Station (ISS) (Thanks guys for making this available to the public for use!) All footage has been color graded, denoised, deflickered, slowed down and stabilized by myself. Clips were then complied and converted to 1080 HD at 24 frames/sec.

Some interesting tidbits about the ISS. It orbits the planet about once every 90 mins and is about 350 Km/217 miles. The yellow/greenish line that you see over the earth is Airgolw.

Hope you all enjoy it and thanks for watching!

P.S. It would be a dream to actually be up there in the ISS. Btw NASA, if you need a Biochemistry Ph.D to do some work for you up there, I’m your man, LOL!

John 1:3 – All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Hebrews 11:3 – By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.

Genesis 2:7 – then the LORD God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.

Romans 1:20 – For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

Awesome Astronomy Images of God’s Universe (APOD 1995 series + 1969 moon landing)

The Trifid Nebula –  Credit: Hopkins Observatory, Karen Gloria

Explanation: The vivid blue and violet colors present in the Trifid Nebula result from the abundance of young stars there. The light from young massive stars is quite blue and has the ability to remove electrons from surrounding gas. When these electrons re-combine with the gas, radiation rich in blue and violet light is emitted. Some of the nebula’s light also results from the reflection of star light off of extremely small carbon specks known as ‘dust’. This object is known to astronomers as M20 – the twentieth object on Charles Messier’s list of diffuse sky objects. This image was taken with a 6-inch refracting telescope. Many images of Messier objects can be found in The Electronic Universe Project’s The Galaxy Gallery: Messier Objects.

M31: The Andromeda Galaxy

Explanation: Andromeda is the nearest major galaxy to our own Milky Way Galaxy. Our Galaxy is thought to look much like Andromeda. Together these two galaxies dominate the Local Group of galaxies. The diffuse light from Andromeda is caused by the hundreds of billions of stars that compose it. The several distinct stars that surround Andromeda’s image are actually stars in our Galaxy that are well in front of the background object. Andromeda is frequently referred to as M31 since it is the 31st object on Messier’s list of diffuse sky objects. M31 is so distant it takes about 2 million years for light to reach us from there.

Earth’s Moon, A Familiar Face

Explanation: The  mosaic of the Earth’s Moon was compiled from photos taken by the spacecraft Clementine in 1994. This image represents the side of the Moon familiar to Earth dwellers. The Moon revolves around the Earth about once every 28 days. Since its rate of rotation about its axis is also once in 28 days, it always keeps the same face toward the Earth. As the Moon travels around its orbit, the Earth based view of the half of the Moon that faces the Sun changes causing the regular monthly progression of Lunar phases. Humans first crashed a spacecraft into the Moon in 1959, but the first humans to reach the Moon landed in 1969. There are now golf balls on the Moon.

The Far Side
Credit: The Soviet Lunar Program

Explanation: This historic picture was humanity’s first glimpse of the far side of the Moon. It was taken by the Soviet spacecraft Luna 3 in October of 1959. Luna 3 followed closely on the heels of another Soviet probe, Luna 2, which had become the first spacecraft to impact the Moon on September 13th of that same year.

Why does the Moon have a far side? Gravitational tidal forces within the Earth-Moon system have synchronized the Moon’s period of rotation around its axis with its orbital period at about 28 days. So, as the Moon moves around its orbit its rotation exactly compensates, keeping the same face toward the Earth.

Explanation: Pictured, the second person to walk on the Moon: Edwin „Buzz” Aldrin. During this Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon while Michael Collins circled in the Command Module above. The lunar team erected a plaque on the surface that reads: HERE MEN FROM THE PLANET EARTH, FIRST SET FOOT UPON THE MOON JULY 1969 A.D., WE CAME IN PEACE FOR ALL MANKIND. The Apollo missions demonstrated that it is possible to land humans on the Moon and return them safely.

One Small Step
Credit: NASA, Kennedy Space Center, Neil Armstrong

Explanation: On July 20th, 1969, a human first set foot on the Moon. Pictured above is the first lunar footprint. The footprint and distinction of the first person to walk on the Moon belong to Neil Armstrong. It has been estimated that one billion people world-wide watched Armstrong’s first step – making the live transmission from a camera mounted on the lunar lander the highest rated television show ever. Upon setting foot on the moon, Armstrong said: „That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.” The Apollo missions to the Moon have been described as the result of the greatest technological mobilization the world has known.

The video of the very first moon landing of the apollo 11 mission in 1969! Neil Armstrong was the first man to set foot on the moon with his now legenday words „One small step for man, a giant leap for mankind.” This is a truly amazing video from 1969!!!

Quasars…region in the center of a massive galaxy surrounding a supermassive black hole

What are Quasars ?

A Primordial Quasar

Explanation: What did the first quasars look like? The nearest quasars are now known to be supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. Gas and dust that falls toward a quasar glows brightly, sometimes outglowing the entire home galaxy. The quasars that formed in the first billion years of the universe are more mysterious, though, with even the nature of the surrounding gas still unknown. Above, an artist’s impression shows a primordial quasar as it might have been, surrounded by sheets of gas, dust, stars, and early star clusters. Exacting observations of three distant quasars now indicate emission of very specific colors of the element iron. These Hubble Space Telescope observations, which bolster recent results from the WMAP mission, indicate that a whole complete cycle of stars was born, created this iron, and died within the first few hundred million years of the universe.

A quasi-stellar radio source („quasar”) is a very energetic and distant active galactic nucleus. Quasars are the most luminous objects in the universe. Quasars were first identified as being high redshift sources of electromagnetic energy, including radio waves and visible light, that were point-like, similar to stars, rather than extended sources similar to galaxies.

While there was initially some controversy over the nature of these objects—as recently as the early 1980s, there was no clear consensus as to their nature—there is now a scientific consensus that a quasar is a compact region in the center of a massive galaxy surrounding its central supermassive black hole. Its size is 10–10,000 times the Schwarzschild radius of the black hole. The quasar is powered by an accretion disc around the black hole.

Quasars show a very high redshift, which is an effect of the expansion of the universe between the quasar and the Earth.[1] They are the most luminous, powerful, and energetic objects known in the universe. They tend to inhabit the very centers of active young galaxies and can emit up to a thousand times the energy output of the Milky Way. When combined with Hubble’s law, the implication of the redshift is that the quasars are very distant—and thus, it follows, objects from much earlier in the universe’s history. The most luminous quasars radiate at a rate that can exceed the output of average galaxies, equivalent to one trillion (1012) suns. This radiation is emitted across the spectrum, almost equally, from X-rays to the far-infrared with a peak in the ultraviolet-optical bands, with some quasars also being strong sources of radio emission and of gamma-rays. In early optical images, quasars looked like single points of light (i.e. point sources), indistinguishable from stars, except for their peculiar spectra. With infrared telescopes and the Hubble Space Telescope, the „host galaxies” surrounding the quasars have been identified in some cases.[2] These galaxies are normally too dim to be seen against the glare of the quasar, except with these special techniques. Most quasars cannot be seen with small telescopes, but 3C 273, with an average apparent magnitude of 12.9, is an exception. At a distance of 2.44 billion light-years, it is one of the most distant objects directly observable with amateur equipment.

More than 200,000 quasars are known, most from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Quasars have all the same properties as active galaxies, but are more powerful. You can read more here and enter the Astronomy portal here.
