Shameless Self Promotion

While searching for friends on blogger I realized no one can find my blog because I only use my first name when I sign my posts.

So, to remedy that problem, I am Kirk Mona. Leave a comment or I will be forced to fustigate you in the head region.

On a seperate note,

Many thanks to my older brother Erik for teaching me words like fustigate.

Space Alive

In my last post I tried to show that space was alive with sound. When we look up at the night sky is seems static, sure it moves but we soon learn that that is largely due to the the motion of the Earth. I present for your enjoyment then two animated clips.

In this animated gif you can watch dust devils dance across the surface of mars. It blew my mind to see images of movement on another planet. Fantastic.

Another view of changing space is this time laspsed clip of star cluster M3. This was compiled over the course of one night. You can really see how the stars change in brightness.
