Indian Reservation

“We have been made to drink of the bitter cup of humiliation; treated like dogs, our lives, our liberties, the sport of the Whiteman; our country and the graves of our Fathers torn from us, in cruel succession until…we find ourselves fugitives, vagrants, and strangers in our own country.”
John Ross, Cherokee

“Build a fire under the Cherokee, when it gets hot enough, they’ll move!”
President Andrew Jackson to the Georgia Congress prior to the 1835 Treaty of New Echota

(The Top)

Lumière irréelle sur le fil fragile des crêtes des Alpes. Souvenir d’un moment d’extase, baigné par les chaudes couleurs du jour qui s’échappe.

Un voyage entre deux mondes.
Une pensée pour mon grand oncle.

Unreal light on the fragile thread of the peaks of the Alps. Memory of a moment of ecstasy, bathed by the warm colors of the day escaping.

A journey between two worlds.
A thought for my great uncle.

Moon Transiting The Sun

On Nov. 22, 2014 from 5:29 to 6:04 p.m. EST., the moon partially obscured the view of the sun from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. This phenomenon, which is called a lunar transit, could only be seen from SDO’s point of view.

In 2014, SDO captured four such transits — including its longest ever recorded, which occurred on Jan. 30, and lasted two and a half hours.

SDO imagery during a lunar transit always shows a crisp horizon on the moon — a reflection of the fact that the moon has no atmosphere around it to distort the light from the sun. The horizon is so clear in these images that mountains and valleys in the terrain can be seen.
