Your views of space and stars
Rare Eclipse at Sunrise
I resisted the temptation to make a time lapse video and decided to show this unique sunrise at its normal speed. It's slow, but it's what really happened. In other words, if you were not on the East coast of the US on November 3rd 2013, here is your chance to live this event, exactly the way you would have seen it with your eyes. I hope you enjoy this unique natural spectacle in a world where we express our thoughts in 140 characters, where we see life through Instagram filters and where disentangling the real from the virtual becomes a challenge...
Thank you to my friend Isaac Namias for composing the original music specifically for this video. You can visit his website here: http://www.isaacnamias.com/
I had two other cameras taking pictures of this eclipse. You can see a selection of these images here: https://picasaweb.google.com/118049621269056730056/2013110402?noredirect=1
This was also a great occasion to visit the Outer Banks, a beautiful place and a little paradise for star gazers looking for dark skies, away from the cities lights.
