Home in Oslo the eclipse was 1% and the sun eas 1 degree anove the horizon. I was in Madras with watsisname (but we didn't manage to meet due to network meltdown though we were likely 100m apart).

Interesting, I noticed that was a popular spot and mentioned on TV a great deal.

Great HDR!  That looks a very close match to how we saw it in Oregon. :)

Is there some way to do an HDR so one can see both the craters on the moon and the sun's corona at the same time?

Total Solar Eclipse 2017

I'm hoping to travel to the destination of where the sun is going to be blocked 100%. even though I most defiantly hate flying or driving car for long periods of time. getting to know new places and seeing the world is something worth doing in your 20's! so by 2024 if I'm traveling and having fun i...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

12068 Why is it that Earth is just a water world, and when you go away from the planet, the water disappears? You have an Intel graphics card . SpaceEngine does not work well with Intel graphics cards. Your problem could be due to this. Jack, you helped me with some stuff before, so I was wondering...

Total Solar Eclipse 2017

I just returned to my hotel from viewing the eclipse in Madisonville, Tennessee. Sky was clear and eclipse was visible the whole time. Very nice experience, except for the extreme heat. Once the moon started blocking the sun though it got better :) Will post pictures whenever I process them, some w...

I wish the sky was like that everywhere.  Alas, there are way too many people on the planet and way too much pollution because of them.

12038 We are humans, but humans are diverse. We speak different languages, we have different cultures, we have different religions, different ways of believing what is right and what is wrong etc. I don't think humanity is ready for a world without countries and borders. We have to learn to live wi...

Based on everything that I have heard, and all the research that I have done, the use of violence is a central theme in the antifa movement. The Department of Homeland Security in the US state of New Jersey actually considers antifa to be a terrorist movement. They might be, but remember the civil ...
