The International Space Station traverses the Galactic Core, Kairakau, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand
There is a point in time, every morning and evening, where it is possible to capture the light of the day as well as the Milky Way. Yesterday morning this coincided with the orbit of the ISS, and as a bonus, from where I was, the line of the ISS followed the arc of the Milky Way.
This image is taken at Kairakau, on the east coast of New Zealand, looking east to the Hinemahanga rocks and the dawn beyond, about an hour before sunrise. The bright star to the right of the image is Venus.
This image is made from 8 separate photos, taken one after the other to capture the line of the ISS over a period of about 100secs. The first image was then used as a base image with the stars and landscape in it, and the ISS path was then blended in from the other 7 images.
8 images, each:
D800, f2.8, 13sec, ISO1600, 17mm
Processed in LR5 then CS6 then back to LR5 for finishing.
So what does Helm actually say about these explosive animals? Are there rockets involved at all? In the text accompanying the images is a section entitled: “To set fire to a castle or city which you can’t get at otherwise,” in which he details how to use doves and cats loaded with flammable devices to set fire to enemy positions. For cats, the text paints a grisly picture of attaching lit sacks of incendiaries onto the animals to have them return to their homes within a besieged city and set fire to them. In my awkward translation:
“Create a small sack like a fire-arrow … bind the sack to the back of the cat, ignite it…and thereafter let the cat go, so it runs to the nearest castle or town, and out of fear it thinks to hide itself where it ends up in barn hay or straw it will be ignited.”
this whole concept fell apart when cats failed to approve it
