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 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.
