So, for #ScienceSunday , curated by +Allison Sekuler, +Robby Bowles, +Rajini Rao and +Chad Haney I have a fun image - a fisheye aurora staggered star-trail shot. :)

Please do me a favor and view this large!

The display of northern lights overhead was beautiful, but with the wide-angle effect of the fisheye lens, it was difficult to get a beautiful display of aurora light everywhere I wanted. I also wanted the stars to pop a bit more, especially because I knew the North Star was in the frame.

I decided not to show a full-on star trail shot here, because the streaks completely overpowered the subtle green hues in the night sky. Instead, I calculated which images to use, having their distance grow exponentially to lead into (or away from) a solid pattern. I then picked the closest image to the equation that was visually pleasing, and stacked the images together using the "lighten" blending mode in Photoshop.

Seven shots in total were used, and the aurora fell in just the right places to leave the center of the spinning stars clearly visible. (although, it's us that are spinning - someone always corrects me!) I've just printed this as a 32"x20" canvas and it looks stunning, the first of many prints I make from my adventures in the Yukon.

I sure hope +Robert Walters sees this image for #StarTrailSunday too!

SDO's Ultra-high Definition View of 2012 Venus Transit

Launched on Feb. 11, 2010, the Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, is the most advanced spacecraft ever designed to study the sun. During its five-year mission, it will examine the sun's atmosphere, magnetic field and also provide a better understanding of the role the sun plays in Earth's atmospheric chemistry and climate.  SDO provides images with resolution 8 times better than high-definition television and returns more than a terabyte of data each day.

On June 5 2012, SDO collected images of the rarest predictable solar event--the transit of Venus across the face of the sun.  This event happens in pairs eight years apart that are separated from each other by 105 or 121 years.  The last transit was in 2004 and the next will not happen until 2117.

The videos and images displayed here are constructed from several wavelengths of extreme ultraviolet light and a portion of the visible spectrum.  The red colored sun is the 304 angstrom ultraviolet, the golden colored sun is 171 angstrom, the magenta sun is 1700 angstrom, and the orange sun is filtered visible light.  304 and 171 show the atmosphere of the sun, which does not appear in the visible part of the spectrum.
