The last miniature effect for now. BTW, these last three days of miniatures are, in case you were wondering, all shot in Seattle on my last visit.

This is a post-processing effect that simulates a tilt-shift lens effect creating a fake miniature feel.

Fay is leaving us, no damage this time

Tropical Storm Fay is now over Naples, Florida as I type. That is at the center but it covers most of the state as it is a wide, if not organized storm


The winds we saw here overnight did not go over 45mph gusts with plenty of rain. We lost power in the middle of the night. One of those explosive sounds from the breakers in the transformers on the street nearby. That made me wake up at 1am and find a flashlight, then power the computers down and shut all the beeping UPS units. Goes with the territory. I guess we were lucky this time.

And the answer is: definitely white with black stripes, don't you think?

Can I see more stars from space?

Phil Plait, the Bad Astronomer produces a wonderful set of videos that are always fun and instructional.

I don't post them that often so as not to clutter, therefore I'm not up to date with them. This one is from July 21st (over a week ago), so if you have already seen it, please disregard. Otherwise, the question is: "Can I see more stars from space than I can see from the surface"?

It is a good question, and for once I knew the answer but let Phil explain.
