ROMANIAN: 

EVENIMENT RAR: Norii noctilucenţi apar la altitudini înalte, iar oamenii de ştiinţă nu înţeleg încă modul în care aceştia se formează şi nici cum se schimbă. Acest fenomen este relativ rar, iar a vedea norii noctilucenţi în acelaşi timp cu o auroră boreală este mult mai rar.

Fotograful Maciej Winiarczyk a fost norocos şi a reuşit să observe acest spectacol celest. Winiarczyk se afla în nordul Scoţiei în noaptea de 4 august, când a reuşit să filmeze nu doar aceşti nori deosebiţi, ci şi aurora boreală. Rezultatul este un spectaculos film time-lapse

Unul dintre cele mai uluitoare momente surprinse în clipul video apare în minutul 1:42, când aurora străluceşte în nuanţe de roz şi purpuriu pe măsură ce moleculele de azot din aer sunt bombardate de vânturile solare.

Norii noctilucenţi sunt luminaţi la rândul lor de către Soare, fiind compuşi din cristale foarte mici de gheaţă situate la 75-85 de kilometri deasupra suprafeţei Pământului. Cristalele măsoară doar 0,1 microni în dimensiuni, adică de 1.000 de ori mai mici decât grosimea unui fir de păr. Aurorele se găsesc într-o regiune situată cu 12 kilometri mai sus decât aceşti nori.

An amateur astronomer has captured rare images of a night sky lit up by unusual high altitude clouds and the Aurora Borealis. Macieji Winiarczyk, a member of Caithness Astronomy Group (CAG), photographed the noctilucent clouds and Northern Lights earlier this month. The images were captured over Caithness and have been used to create time lapse footage.

US space agency Nasa has featured the time lapse on an astronomy website.

On the site, astronomers said it was rare to see the clouds and aurora individually. Noctilucent is the Cloud Appreciation Society’s cloud of the month for August. The society said they form in a region of extreme cold in the atmosphere about 30 to 50 miles (48-85 km) from the Earth’s surface.

On its website it said: „Noctiulcent clouds can only be spotted during the summer months and then only occasionally. „They always have an eerie blue, rippled appearance and the processes behind their formations are far from clear.”

Footage from a time-lapse workshop during the Perseid Meteor Shower. Shot on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night in Joshua Tree National Park. Please note that not all of the light trails are meteors. Some of them are airplanes or satellites crossing the night sky. You can tell by the direction and length of the trails.

This is a 2 minute trailer of the short time lapse film from Knate Myers, who will be releasing the actual film during the fall of 2013. Time lapse footage of the night sky is probably the most spectacular footage one can watch, and even in this 2 minute trailer you can experience some fantastic shots of the Milky Way sky. Can’t wait for the video. We will post it when it becomes available!

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.
