Astro-Cool: The Turning Earth

Thanks to Adam Savage of  the Mythbusters (@donttrythis on twitter) for bringing these beautiful astronomy images to my attention.

Here is a set of night-sky time-lapse videos taken at the VLT (Very Large Telescope).

The first is edited so the earth is moving and the stars are fixed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1O66XsbrOA  and the source video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFpeM3fxJo

These are some great images of our beautiful and amazing universe.

I’m feeling geeky: Blade Runner & Olmos

I just saw over on twitter that Edward James Olmos will be participating in a live twitter conversation while watching the Director’s Cut of Blade Runner tonight (8PM EST/5PM PCT)

Just follow #MovieNightTweet with the movie cued up to the green tree logo on the hour.
