I would request that my body in death be buried not cremated, so that the energy content contained within it gets returned to the earth, so that flora and fauna can dine upon it, just as I have dined upon flora and fauna during my lifetime.

Last night I made it out to my dark sky sight at Jenny Jump State Park. I tried my hand at some guiding and got some okay results. I was so eager since its been a while that I could not stay set on one target I jumped around from The Swan Nebula to the Pinwheel Galaxy (pictured) and many more. These are both single exposures and are not a finished product but I couldn’t resist sharing. The conditions were perfect and I saw more sky then I ever have in my life.

Keep looking up.

Timée by artist Guillaume Marmin and musician Philippe Gordiani is an installation that re-imagines the universe as a sonic solar system. It was inspired by the ancient theory of the Music of the Spheres, which combined geometry, astronomy, and music into a single unified theory of the universe.

About the project:

Guillaume and Philippe discussed their vision with Isabelle Vauglin, astronomer at the CRAL. Even though Plato’s concept has been proven wrong for centuries, this idea still supplies us with a poetic reading of the cosmos. Although we know today that there is no matter in space to convey sound, we can nonetheless find bridges between astronomy and music. Astrophysicists study the frequencies of planets to keep track of their evolution and if one translates these frequencies up by 15 octaves they become perceptible to human ears. A computer or a theremin can now enable us to listen to the sound of a planet: a new Music of the Spheres.

You can see more of the installation in this video:
