NASA Goddard164,118Guess that comet showed us... Comet ISON May Have Survived. Continuing a history of surprises, material from Comet ISON appeared on the other side of the sun on the evening on Nov. 28, 2013, despite not having been seen in observations during its closest approach to the sun.  http://www.nasa.gov/content/goddard/comet-ison-may-have-survived/ http://youtu.be/q03I1B_yrPg The ultimate battle of fire and ice! Who will win, the sun or Comet #ISON?  Join #NASA as we follow the journey of Comet ISON as it slingshots around the sun.  Will the awesome gravity and energy of the sun break up this cosmic ball of ice and rock? Will it break up? Or will it pass the sun intact to put on a dazzling show in the December sky?  Watch as NASA solar physicists track the comet LIVE from the mission control for NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory,@NASA_SDO, during #ISON’s closest approach to the sun.  We'll also be joined by comet scientists joining from Kitt Peak Observatory in Arizona, where the solar telescope will be observing ISON and by science writer Phil Plait. NASA scientists will answer your questions LIVE on air here on Google+, in the YouTube comments section during the live broadcast, or via Twitter using #ISON and #askNASA. The participants in this Hangout include: • C. Alex Young, Solar Physicist, Associate Director for Science in the Heliophysics Science Division and co-founder of The Sun Today - NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md., • W. Dean Pesnell, Solar Physicist and Project Scientist for the Solar Dynamics Observatory - NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md., • Karl Battams, Comet Scientist for the Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, DC, and solar spacecraft lead for NASA's Comet ISON Observing Campaign, joining from Kitt Peak Observatory in Arizona, where the solar telescope will be observing ISON.  • Phil Plait, writes Slate's 'Bad Astronomy' blog and is an astronomer, science evangelizer, and author of the books "Bad Astronomy" and "Death from the Skies!"NASA Hangout: Comet ISON LIVE2013-11-28 19:00:0027960

Jeff Sullivan1,996,738+Lori Hibbett and I and I will try to be shooting on the rocks by around 6:30 to capture golden hour light. Sunset is at 7:18, so the best sky color will be from then until 7:40 or so. Then we'll have some "blue hour" twilight for another 20-30 minutes, the light painting can start by 8, and stars will be gradually strengthening from then through 8:30 for night shots. If we're getting some good light and reflections off the beach making light orbs and so on, we can shoot to 9 or whenever we get thirsty. No problem if you're late given work, school and weekday traffic, we should be able to stay entertained shooting in the changing light for at least 2-2.5 hours.  We'll go to a bar or restaurant for another hour or two after that. This free social event is open to all; you're welcome to bring your photographer friends (on Flickr, Meetup, 500px, from your local photography club, etc.) We're looking forward to seeing those of you we've met out shooting in recent years, and meeting those of you we haven't shot with yet! We'd like to explore the area known as Hospitals Reef or Draper Villas, the rocks adjacent to Coast Boulevard Park 0.7 miles south of La Jolla Cove (see map).  We'll also shoot El Matador State Beach in Malibu April 11 and Little Corona Beach April 14.Sunset Photowalk La Jolla Monday April 152013-04-15 18:30:0030

Early Bloom in Death Valley
There are early wildflowers with above average density in some portions of Death Valley this week. Heat may cause the current flowers to wither a bit, but some areas that received water haven't really started showing much yet, so there could be another bloom coming in many areas with more "normal" timing in a few weeks. In a normal season however wildflower blooms can be scattered and weak, so unless we get more rain from this El Nino weather pattern, the current dense areas could well turn out to be the peak for the park in 2016.

New Death Valley Images from 2015 Visits
I'm working on a detailed guide to photography locations in Death Valley, so I'm finding a lot of nice photos from there from the past 10 years that I've been exploring the park. I found quite a few nice locations and compositions in Death Valley in 2015. You can see many of my photos in a 2015 album on my Death Valley Workshops page on G+:

In most years I've been too busy to collect my Top 10 photos for the prior year, but this year I started off the year sick, so I caught up on ten years of Top 10 collections in my down time.

So sorry to hear of the loss of David Bowie to cancer. I set my 2013 Perseid meteor shower footage to the InFiction String remix of David Bowie's "Let's Dance" because I had positive associations between his music and portions of my life.

Perseid Meteor Shower 2013 - Time-lapse Astrophotography
Over six minutes of footage from recent nights, set to the InFiction remix of David Bowie's "Let's Dance", as featured in the recent Kia commercial. 

For best results and to see the most meteors, be sure and watch it on YouTube and use the option at the bottom to watch it in HD, either 720P or 1080P HD resolution.  

I've given this a few hours head start on G+... +87 so far... now I'll try it on another site and let's see which results in the most response.___So sorry to hear of the loss of David Bowie to cancer. I set my 2013 Perseid meteor shower footage to the InFiction String remix of David Bowie's "Let's Dance" because I had positive associations between his music and portions of my life.

Shoot the Full Moon at Sunrise/Sunset, 3 Times Tonight and Tomorrow

With only 12-13 full moon dates each year, I like planning ahead to catch the moon rising at sunset and setting at sunrise. You ahve three opportuniteis to catch great moon shots by tomorrow evening:

1) Tonight here in the Eastern Sierra, the 98% full moon will rise at 6:36pm, a little more than 30 minutes before the 7:10pm sunset, so I can choose a low shooting position to catch the moon near something 6.1 degrees up in the sky right at sunset.

2) The full moon will set tomottow morning at 6:56am, shortly after the 6:36am sunrise, so it will be a short distance up in the sky and I should try to be somewhere which enables me to catch it setting behind the crest of the Sierra Nevada at 6:30am, when it is 4 degrees up from where I am and there may be both color in the sky and orange alpenglow from the rising sun (a few minutes before scheduled sunrise, since the mountains are so much higher than the surrounding terrain).

3) Tomorrow night the full moon will rise at 6:56pm, 14 before the 7:09pm sunset. In other words, it will have been in the sky 15-30 minutes during the best sunset color. That works out to an elevation angle of .9 to 3.6 degrees, so I should find a location with a relatively low horizon tot he east.

Now if only I could pick not only a shooting position with the right elevation, but also one which lets me place the moon next to something interesting on the ground. Well if you read my blog, you know I use a tool which enables you to do exactly that:
Anticipating Sun and Moon Alignments
http://activesole.blogspot.com/2010/03/anticipating-sun-and-moon-position.html
The times will be slightly different depending upon where you are on the planet, but using +The Photographer's Ephemeris (#TPE) on top of Google Earth, you can easily work out fairly accurate times for your shooting positions.

In case you're interested, I've placed a high resolution copy of this image on 500px, where you can send it as a free ecard or order a print or gallery wrap canvas: http://500px.com/photo/1961454___Sunset Moon Rise Coming December 24

Water is Back in Death Valley

Lake Manly is Back in Badwater Basin!
Lake Manly forms in the Badwater Basin when enough rain falls in the surrounding mountain ranges to leave a pool of water.  Recent rains have formed Lake Manly, and it will resurface the salt flats with a fresh coat of white, but it often does not last long under Death Valley's baking sun.

It's always a good idea to check the Death Valley Road Conditions page before visiting:

Twilight Light Painting
In addition to the headlights and a light in the interior, I used the fading twilight light coming over the horizon to the left for fill and back light, and used a cool (blue-white LED) flashlight as the main key light to the right. In portrait photography it's common to think of the key light as front-lighting the subject, but I didn't want too much light on the grill, to preserve the contract of the headlights vs. the dark front, and the overall mood of a slightly enlivened hulk of a car.

With roughly a quarter of a million visitors to Bodie each year, some say that this 1937 Chevy is the most photographed car in the world. I have plenty of photos of it myself, but I like to try different photographic treatments.to explore what more can be done with it.

September Road Trip, Over 3500 Miles!
I'm starting to get a fair number of photos uploaded from my road trip last month, to Mount Rainier and Port Townsend Washington, across to Lake Louise, then down the Rockies to Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.

Campsite Photo Backup and Recharge
I carry external batteries like this to charge phones and other USB devices wherever I am. To protect my PC data, I back up my hard drives (having lost 7 hard drives in recent years). For my vehicle I carry a roadside assistance plan to get my vehicle towed when it breaks down. But what if your phone fails? The most common cause of failure is dropping it in water, which I've done. I'd rather upgrade to the latest model than carry an insurance plan on the phone itself, but when traveling I don't stop to sync the data enough, or even just back up photos, so how can you avoid losing data?

On my September road trip, SanDisk offered me their new Wireless Memory Stick to use with my 2 phones: the old iPhone 5S I still had on a 2-year contract and an LG G4 that I use for photos. Fortunately I didn't lose a phone on this trip, but when my SUV... more »

Campsite Photo Backup and Recharge
I carry external batteries like this to charge phones and other USB devices wherever I am. To protect my PC data, I back up my hard drives (having lost 7 hard drives in recent years). For my vehicle I carry a roadside assistance plan to get my vehicle towed when it breaks down. But what if your phone fails? The most common cause of failure is dropping it in water, which I've done. I'd rather upgrade to the latest model than carry an insurance plan on the phone itself, but when traveling I don't stop to sync the data enough, or even just back up photos, so how can you avoid losing data?

On my September road trip, SanDisk offered me their new Wireless Memory Stick to use with my 2 phones: the old iPhone 5S I still had on a 2-year contract and an LG G4 that I use for photos. Fortunately I didn't lose a phone on this trip, but when my SUV suffered a catastrophic failure, that underscored the fact that you just never know what's going to go next!

The Wireless Stick worked like a charm on both my IOS and Android devices, both selective transfers of new photos from my 64GB iPhone and an automated Gallery Backup from the LG G4, which as you can see on the display in this photo, was 99% full, thanks in part to its high resolution images. In this photo I'm just topping off the Sandisk Wireless Stick (on top) using a battery I carry to charge USB devices. The Stick already had on it all of the new LG G4 images that I had taken, thanks to the Gallery Backup I had selected. It seemed too easy, almost too good to be true, but whenever I checked, it was up to date with the latest images. It's a whole lot more convenient than driving to a Starbucks to clear memory cards from my DSLR onto my laptop PC, to ensure that it can complete before the batteries die! (My 17" laptop uses a lot of power.)

It's nice that the Wireless Stick also works like a traditional USB stick so you can transfer files directly to a PC. But when the vehicle that you've been using for power across much of your trip fails, it's nice that your phone photo backup is current, one less thing to worry about with what little power may be left on your devices! I ran into exactly that situation when my SUV failed in the middle of nowhere, halfway between Grand Teton National Park and Salt Lake City: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/?p=90322

When I returned from the trip and was able to replace my old iPhone 5S with an iPhone 6S+, I immediately tested that with the SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick as well. It comes in 16, 32, 64 & 128 GB sizes and SanDisk has provided a coupon for 30% off the 64GB size: https://goo.gl/1HRPrF

I'll have to see what else it can do. I know that you can stream music and videos stored on it to up to 3 devices at once.

Final Leg Home, Without My SUV!
Not long before this 3000-mile trip I had just bought new tires, completed some repairs and had the oil changed, but you just never know what's going to happen on the road.  Here's how the story ends, as I head home in a rental minvan:
http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/2015/10/22/final-leg-home-without-my-suv/

I'm posting the story of this trip in installments, in reverse order, so that once they are all posted on my blog, they can be read straight through in chronological order to the end, no matter what section new readers may arrive in.  

Here's the new post describing the prior day, leaving Grand Teton and the loss of my SUV: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/?p=90322
