This was in the latest issue of Popular Science.

If you can find the mag, the pic there is much more clear and detailed.

Explaining the "two" Suns is the tricky part. Divinations and divinations ...  :rollseyes

You just take a photograph of something over a long time span, so things that're there for a long time becomes sharply defined and things that move around or change become fuzzy.

Doing it with astronomy gets you some pretty cool results as you see the tracks of stellar motion..
The mind transcends the body.
It's also a little cold because of that.
Please get it a blanket.

I wish I could read your mind,
I can barely read mine.

"Just what do you think the moon up in the sky is? Everyone sees that big, round shiny thing and thinks there must be something round up there, right? That's just silly. The truth is much more awesome than that. You can almost never see the real Moon, and its appearance is death to humans. You can only see the Moon when it's reflected in things. And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"

That is an awesomely cool pic. I want a demi-plane just like that for every wizard I play from now on. :D

Sounds like the makings of a gay porn film.

Miz R --- veekie's got it.
The upper part of the pic is just a camera left open all night.
I've no idea about the camera work specifics.
The lower part is a set of photos imposed on each other.
Can't take a straight photo of the Sun without burning things.
iirc - the article goes into the details.


PhaeXY --- yeah that was my thought.
Genesis with a hint of Dragonball Z; maybe a really big Illusion.
Don't ask me how I know about DBZ ...  ;)
