A timelapse of yesterdays solar eclipse, shot using my 100-400L 4-5.6 lens through an Astrosolar film. I was surprised to see that my lens could even capture a sunspot (visible in the upper left part of the sun.)

I started selling stuff on RedBubble; If you've ever wanted nice posters/phone/covers/pillows with nature themed prints, now's your chance!

Definately a phenomenon I've come across.
 
This is probably the biggest reason why I ultimately decided to get out of politics: the fact that I enjoy and embrace discussing hypothetical taboos. If I'd be too much in the public eye, I'd no doubt soon get countless of angry bloggers on my back, taking everything that I happened to say in some online conversation and twisting it out of all proportion. And not only would I need to censor myself for the sake of myself, I would also need to consider the impact that anything I said would have on my party mates. No thanks. I'll rather stick to discussing these issues somewhere where, although I might still become the target of an online witch hunt, at least nobody has a political incentive to whip one up.

> Two miners are trapped underground by an explosion. They could be saved, but it would cost a million dollars. That million could be spent on saving the lives of thousands of starving people. Could it ever be morally right to abandon the miners to their fate and spend the money on saving the thousands? Most of us would say no. Would you? Or do you think it is wrong even to raise such questions?

> These dilemmas are uncomfortable. It is the business of moral philosophers to face up to the discomfort and teach their students to do the same. A friend, a professor of moral philosophy, told me he received hate-mail when he raised the hypothetical case of the miners. He also told me there are certain thought experiments that divide his students down the middle. Some students are capable of temporarily accepting a noxious hypothetical, to explore where it might lead. Others are so blinded by emotion that they cannot even contemplate the hypothetical. They simply stop up their ears and refuse to join the discussion.

> “We all agree it isn’t true that some human races are genetically superior to others in intelligence. But let’s for a moment suspend disbelief and consider the consequences if it were true. Would it ever be right to discriminate in job hiring? Etcetera.” My friend sometimes poses this very question, and he tells me that about half the students are willing to entertain the hypothetical counterfactual and rationally discuss the consequences. The other half respond emotionally to the hypothetical, are too revolted to proceed and simply opt out of the conversation. [...]

> There are those whose love of reason allows them to enter such disagreeable hypothetical worlds and see where the discussion might lead. And there are those whose emotions prevent them from going anywhere near the conversation. Some of these will vilify and hurl vicious insults at anybody who is prepared to discuss such matters. Some will pursue active witch-hunts against moral philosophers for daring to consider obnoxious hypothetical thought experiments.
by Richard Dawkins   Are there kingdoms of emotion where logic is taboo, dare not show its face, zones where reason is too intimidated to speak? Moral philosophers make full use of the techniq...

I caught the Aurora Borealis as they shined in Jyväskylä. Sadly I did not have my camera ready when they were at they're strongest.

We raced ahead the thunderstorm from Krems to Vienna, and I rushed to set up my camera in the window of my hotel room to capture this display.

The camera was shooting on motion detection, so each frame was caught as a lightning strike triggered the camera. Most of the strikes happened behind the glass tower, but triggered the camera anyway. Counting the pictures, there were little less than 200 strikes during the ~hour the camera was active.
