I can't wait for the day when people live in space and start thinking of things like this as just a routine thing.

Wait, Saturn's got boobs?

Did they have to add the creepish murder music?

Even if people lived in space, 15 years between events is going to make it a fairly distinct occurence.

HighlanderRPI: Aurorae of Uranus still elusive


This being FARK, I imagine that aurorae of that kind are far too common.

I was just going to ask, What was that wonderful music accompanying this video?

So full of radiance from the touch of God!
This orb is darkened to the distant watch
Of Saturn and his reapers, when they pause,
Amid their sheaves, to count the nightly stars.

- 'The Quest of the Sangraal' by Robert Stephen Hawker (1864)

Kubrick could have totally used that as the soundtrack for the "Beyond the Infinite" section of 2001.

/my god it's full of stars

Thatt was cool. But not as cool as the double areola show I got the other night.

well, I think the Republicans have figured out that God didn't put a bunch of oil on mars to test their faith there, so who's going to pay for all this?

Yup, I just learned something new. That was cool.

What double Aurorae may look like.
 
2010-02-13 12:45:34 PM  
That music was perfect for that video...
 
2010-02-13 12:48:25 PM  
For a couple of frames you can see one of its moons coming across from left to right on the top of the shot.

Oh, I thought I was a cylon.

I feel so foolish for believing the plural was spelled "aurori." Oh well, back to my pet octopae.
 
2010-02-13 01:06:38 PM  
Saturn is hot
 
2010-02-13 01:13:26 PM  
looks like a streetlight to me.

Well, as long as you vote Obama you're not going to see anything but low Earth orbit, and that, even, is dicey.

Awesome light show and greet music. Thanks, submitter.

And I'm perfectly happy watching my single my aurorus.

AHHHH. Saturn is going to kill us all!

CaulkSpunk: Awesome light show and greet music. Thanks, submitter.


I hadn't considered it to be greeting music, but yes, perhaps the Saturnites are greeting us, after all. Hunh.

That's... Not really eeire, sounds like cheap sci-fi sound effects from the old Star Trek series.

Still, very cool, indeed.

The plural is auroras unless you're speaking latin.

Some people already do live in space! Sure, it is not many, but it is a start!

Because, remember, only Big Government can put people into space. In fact, only Big Government should be allowed to put people into space. Right?
 
2010-02-13 04:27:53 PM  
Does Earth emit creepy murder music as well? How about other planets? I guess Saturn's creepy murder music is what the ancient poets were referring to when they mentioned 'the sounds of the spheres'. Cool, eh?
 
2010-02-13 04:37:02 PM  
You can actually hear the whales of Saturn singing.

For the next 30 years, yes. And I won't be around to care about anything else.

Aurora Borealis? At this time of year? At this time of day? In this part of the country? Localized entirely within your kitchen?
 
2010-02-13 08:59:10 PM  
That music made me want to smoke a bowl.
 
2010-02-13 10:02:07 PM

Reminds me of the "gates of hell" recordings from Russia. That was cool, thanks!
