total solar eclipse - svalbard

did you see the total solar eclipse on march 20th, 2015?

my friend geoff sims was up to capture him consistently amazing photos of the events from Svalbard.

and one from 35,000 feet, collaboration with Glenn Schneider.

i'd like to see a thorough movie of his experiences and eclipse photos.  here's a preview of that possibility.  support their kickstarter if you want to see it to!

i missed it unfortunately, but i absolutely have plans to be in the US on August 21st, 2017 ;)

aurora australis

last night the skies over a lot of australia and new zealand glowed - the aurora australis.  this photo was captured in perth, western australia by colin legg.

you can also see the milky way shooting across the sky and the large magellanic cloud - a small irregular galaxy smudged just at the top of the red glowing gas.

the southern hemisphere night sky is so lovely.
