APOD: Flying Over the Earth at Night (2013 Mar 31) Video Credit: Gateway to Astronaut Photography, NASA; Compilation: David Peterson (YouTube); Music: Freedom Fighters (Two Steps from Hell) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130331.html http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FG0fTKAqZ5g Explanation: 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. http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/ http://www.youtube.com/user/Bitmeizer Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130331 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0331

"Michelle and I wish you a blessed and joyful Easter." —President Obama in his Weekly Address: http://wh.gov/HpRt

Rust and Steel Good morning folks and Happy Easter! I hope that you all have a great day planned with family and friends! Just a quick post this morning of a shot that I took over the summer from the West Ende Bridge that wasn't at 6 in the morning! I grabbed a few shots of the skyline and when I was packing my gear up, I thought that adding the rusty railing to the frame along with the Pittsburgh skyline might be a cool look. I like the way that it turned out! My portfolio: http://hdrexposed.zenfolio.com/portfolio
