cloud effect

Image of the star V838 Monocerotis reveals dramatic changes in the illumination of surrounding dusty cloud structures. The effect, called a light echo, has been unveiling never-before-seen dust patterns ever since the star suddenly brightened for several weeks.


Epic night sky timelapse over Vermillion Cliffs National Monument - if you get to the 2nd half you’ll get a thunderstorm, star trails, and really creepy effect from clouds passing in long exposure/timelapse.


Seems Very Interesting

Observer Effect: The theoretical foundation of the concept of measurement in quantum mechanics is a contentious issue deeply connected to the many interpretations of quantum mechanics. A key focus point is that of wave function collapse, for which several popular interpretations assert that measurement, or observation, causes a discontinuous change into an eigenstate of the operator associated with the quantity that was measured.

Here’s the artwork I did for the Bright Eyes side of the 2006 split 7” with Super Furry Animals. I wanted to incorporate the early Every Day and Every Night vibe with the Digital Ash era. The numbers are of course from the great artwork that Jadon Ulrich made for Digital Ash. I printed it out on cardstock and added vellum layers for the cloud effect. The lettering is hand cut. When you die, your rotting corpse data gets downloaded into a little plant, which I guess is nice.

Watch on

Looking out over other volcanoes on the island of Java, Indonesia, as clouds create a nice effect by rolling by in pulses.

πόσο θα θελα να φύγω ξανά… να ξεφύγω… να πετάξω και να τα αφήσω όλα πίσω μου… ξανά πάνω σε ένα αεροπλάνο να βρεθώ και να εξαφανιστώ να χαθεί το μυαλό μου μέσα στα σύννεφα… 

Fanart Fridays! This is Commander Shepard as a kid during a layover. Cause that’s the kinda thing I think about in the mass effect universe. The mundane. That or the incredible sex education they must have on Thessia (i mean really, imagine having to learn how sex works for a plethora of aliens, all who have/like different things than your juicy mind sex). 

Anyway. Yeah. Not friday. Not an indie game this week. I’ll get back on the whole friday/indie game fanart thing another week. :b 

A Colorful Solar Corona over the Himalayas : What are those colorful rings around the Sun? A corona visible only to Earth observers in the right place at the right time. Rings like this will sometimes appear when the Sun or Moon is seen through thin clouds. The effect is created by the quantum mechanical diffraction of light around individual, similarly-sized water droplets in an intervening but mostly-transparent cloud. Since light of different colors has different wavelengths, each color diffracts differently. Solar Coronae are one of the few quantum color effects that can be easily seen with the unaided eye. This type of solar corona is a visual effect due to water in Earths atmosphere and is altogether different from the solar corona that exists continually around the Sun and stands out during a total solar eclipse.
