To those brave men and women who fly alone in the night to take us to the stars, we salute you. ----------------------- Sequences: 1. North-to-south down the western coast of North and South America. 2. North-to-south over Florida, the Bahamas and other Caribbean islands. 3. South-East Asia, approaching the Philippine Sea 4. Western Europe, from France through Italy, Greece, Turkey and the Middle East. 5. Aurora Australis, over the Indian Ocean, approaching Australia 6. Aurora Australis, over the Indian Ocean. 7. Aurora Australis, unknown location in the Southern Hemisphere. ----------------------- Featured on NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day! http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap120305.html Explanation from NASA: Many wonders are visible when flying over the Earth at night. A compilation of such visual spectacles was captured recently from the International Space Station (ISS) and set to rousing music. Passing below are white clouds, orange city lights, lightning flashes in thunderstorms, and dark blue seas. On the horizon is the golden haze of Earth's thin atmosphere, frequently decorated by dancing auroras as the video progresses. The green parts of auroras typically remain below the space station, but the station flies right through the red and purple auroral peaks. Solar panels of the ISS are seen around the frame edges. The ominous wave of approaching brightness at the end of each sequence is just the dawn of the sunlit half of Earth, a dawn that occurs every 90 minutes.

Ever looked into the eyes of another sentient being as they look back at you? Ever wondered what they were thinking as they wondered what you thought? We measure everything by our own yardsticks as we are comfortable with that level of understanding. But not every creature capable of thought uses our yardsticks and they observe us as much as we observe them. When, and only when we realise that we are not a supreme being on this planet but one that shares with others will be be as capable as those we dismiss.
CloudFTP lets you share a whole hard drive full of movies wirelessly with your iDevice! It started out as a Kickstarter project that +Cali Lewis and I helped fund. (You can read about it here: http://geekbeat.tv/cloudftp)
Well, they shipped the first batch and we're giving a pair away!

*Image Info:*Decided to reprocess my profile shot taken in Norway..Hope you like it..Wishing you all a beautiful Sunday :)
At the beginning of a new day, the sun pointed to where we could find some color.
While I continue to process more photos from my trip to Japan, I thought I'd take this time to share another shot from the great weekend I had in Utah. This is the Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork. A small group of us decided to head out there early to catch the sunrise and to shoot the area before it became...
