This is an inverted high-speed video capture of the International Space Station crossing the disc of the sun today as seen from my location in Byron Bay. It’s actually captured in black and white, but most people prefer to see the sun in orange even though it’s actually white.
I’d like to quickly apologise to everyone who subscribed to my photoblog up to 10 years ago (one of the longest running blogs in internet history) only to find that in the last 2 years it’s become increasingly space-focused. I began taking photos of birds, and somehow we’ve ended up here, taking photos of deep space. But 10 years is a long time and I’ve really enjoyed specialising like this. There will be regular landscapes, nature and portraits again no doubt.
But since I’m posting, here’s another bunch of recent images that I share on social media but don’t end up with their own posts here for whatever reason. I’ve recently built a small backyard observatory so my output has increased quite a lot, but I’m not going to bombard you with daily updates of every little image I create. So here’s a quick blast of the minutia. Click to enlarge :
Until next time!
