Mars and Eclipsed Moon in the first twilight.

It was really special to see both the Red Planet and red Moon just as the first rays of twilight hit the sky above the Southern Ocean. This photo comes really close to the view through wide field binoculars.

Hope you enjoy it 😀

Blood on the water

I hoped for clear skies above the Mornington Peninsula for the Lunar Eclipse of the century because I really wanted to catch the red light path on the water cast by the Blood Moon. Despite multiple disasters that morning, I managed to get this image during the astronomical twilight. Very bright Mars is above the Moon.

I hope you enjoy the view 😀

Early Morning Eclipse

The longest Total Lunar Eclipse of the century (Saturday, 28th of July) from Mornington Peninsula was at its best in the early morning twilight. The totality phase was just about to end as the Moon was setting and the Sun was chasing it just below the horizon. Mars is above it. I hope you enjoy this unique view 😀

The Observatories

in June 2011 I was very lucky to attend the inaugural STARMUS festival on Tenerife and observe with the largest single-mirror optical telescope on the planet – 10-metre GranTeCan. After spending five days at STARMUS listening to and chatting with the great astrophysicists and space legends I decided to dedicate more time to astronomy science and film the observatories around the world.

Liquid Light Show

During our camping holiday at Wilsons Promontory National Park (Victoria, Australia) in December I noticed a glimpse of bioluminescence in the surf. However, the weather was not favourable for night sky photography and I knew I had to return at the earliest opportunity and photograph this phenomenon under the stars. I waited for the next New Moon in January 2013 and ventured out to Squeaky Beach at night. The blue surf started to appear when it became dark and it was amazing to see the blue sparkle as I walked in the water.

Persistent Meteor Trains
