Since we were talking about “stuff in front of celestial objects” … look at this great show from a german news outlet:
Oh yes, the heat from the engines makes for some great effects. I was pretty surprised when I saw that yesterday.
a quick last look at Ursa Major
Looking for the perseides? 🤔 I can’t look in that direction from here, unfortunately. Hey, I just saw a comet in stellarium! Close enough. 😂
More moon-plane attempts this morning:
The conditions have to be just right:
- East wind, otherwise the planes take a different route.
- Almost full moon, obviously, and no clouds.
- Around sunrise, or it gets too bright outside (moon too dim).
- The planes have to be at just the right distance (depends on where the moon is). They were already too close today. If they appear smaller than the moon, then this makes the moon look massively big, which makes for a more dramatic effect.
- I think it has to be summer. The full moon takes a different path in winter. Judging from what I see in stellarium, the best conditions could be right now in August. 🤔 The moon takes a similar path in April, if I’m not mistaken, but that’s way too early in the morning.
- (Don’t mess up your camera settings, you idiot.)
Also saw a hot air balloon.
(#moqdvoq) HTML emails were a mistake. One of the biggest ones ever.
(#qmlkmia) @email@example.com This is the usual route that all planes take (if the wind comes from east), so I could sit there, watch lots of them, and hope that one will fly close to the moon. 😅 I spent about half an hour. Still depends on luck a lot.
@firstname.lastname@example.org According to flightradar24.com, this might have been flight DLH779. If so, it was indeed an A340.
Probably my best attempt at “airplane in front of the moon”, yet.
There were lots and lots of planes coming from that direction, but none of them flew right in front of the moon like the last time. Well, maybe some other day.
What I keep confusing is
S. Like, is that “month” or “minute”, “second” or “timestamp”? If it was
YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss and
T for a timestamp, it would be easier. But no, it’s
Y-m-d H:M:S (according to
strftime()), a mixture of upper case and lower case. (The easiest way to remember it is probably: “The time
H:M:S is upper case, date
y-m-d is lower case – and then they noticed Y2K, so
Y got added.”)
Rescaling the individual videos, fading, adding the background (for smaller videos), adding labels, … Granted, there was quite a bit of ImageMagick, too.
You gotta admire the quality of today’s audio productions. Everything is crystal clear. That in itself is a pleasure to listen to. 👌 Audio engineering really has come a long way. 😍
(If you like this kind of thing, look up the official video of “Into The Earth”. It’s a short horror film. The imagery might be a bit disturbing, depending on what you’re used to, so I won’t link it.)
(#nik3c4a) @email@example.com Just opened the video, skipped to a random position and ended up on 18:30 where he starts talking about Ruby. YES. THIS IS WHY I HATE RUBY. 😂 (And a couple of things more.)
Gotta watch the whole talk, looks like a lot of fun. 😃
(#4nxp4mq) (Mandatory post appreciating Angela Gossow, previous vocalist of “Arch Enemy” until Alissa took over. She was a pioneer in metal vocals and one of the first women to make it big time doing harsh growled vocals. Nowadays we have lots of female vocalists who do this kind of stuff – maybe/probably thanks to her –, which is a big plus for the genre. 🤘)
(#4nxp4mq) I found this while watching a two hour long interview of Alissa White-Gluz (who appears to be a great person). “Me And That Man” is the side project of Nergal, vocalist of “Behemoth”. Vocals in “Goodbye” are done by Alissa, obviously, and Devin Townsend.
