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.

Kodak Moment: Enceladus

Kodak Moment: Enceladus

Following up on yesterday’s post, Gordan Ugarkovic found another “Kodak” moment involving Enceladus from the recent raw images. The Cassini team apparently will arrange to have the probe snap these kinds of images every so often to essentially fulfill PR needs. They have actually dubbed them as “Kodak Moments” when planning for gathering more compositionally compelling images of Saturn and its moons for public consumption.

Shouldn’t there just be an Ugarkovic category at this point?
