I saw this image when I was a kid. The photograph of Jupiter taken by NASA’s Voyager. Beautiful. But nothing special until shown in rapid succession. Suddenly Jupiter was alive. Breathing. I was hypnotized.

With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here’s Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World.

Huge thanks in the making of the video to the talented trio of Emm Gryner, Joe Corcoran and Andrew Tidby, plus Evan Hadfield and all at the CSA.

This is the sun. It’s a star. These types of stellar events are happening throughout the cosmos amongst many stars.

Think about this the next time you complain that “the sun is in your eyes” or, “it’s so hot”, or simply when you step outside, photons from this star encounter your face and you feel the warmth of this star’s energy immerse your fragile, human frame.

Stay curious.

People ask to see stars - my camera does its best in dim light. Our atmosphere glows in the dark.
