You need to upgrade your Flash Player The theme of this blog is not only and obviously space, but in particular “terrestrial worlds”, places that tend to have surfaces on which one could walk or at least attach oneself to. These places sometimes also have other earth-like familiar features such as atmospheres, weather, volcanos, geysers and perhaps, we are finding, even exotic oceans, rivers or lakes that are not necessarily made of familiar materials we are used to here at home. The second theme is imagery. Occasionally I do some retouching of images when needed if an image is incomplete or sometimes “dirty” or noisy. I will attempt to correct image shortcomings based upon other images or well-accepted presumed attributes. When this is done, notes will be offered as to what was added, why and sometimes how it was done. This way no one should ever wonder if something they are looking at is real or photoshop.

Wallpaper: Titan Eclipse

Wallpaper: Titan Eclipse
Titan passed in between Cassini and the sun giving us this opportunity to see the haze of the atmosphere lit from behind.

WALLPAPER NOTE: The original image only revealed half the disc. To complete the full image the top half was taken, flipped and overlapped with another lesser impressive eclipse image to avoid obvious repeat. So, in reality, the lower half of the image is “faked” but it is composed entirely of real references.
