Time-Lapse: The Skies Over Dry Tortugas

Bad Astronomy - 24 Jul 2016 15:00
How have I never heard of Dry Tortugas National Park until now? It's a little over 100 km west of Key West, Florida, in the Gulf of Mexico. It's pretty remote, accessible only by boat or seaplane, and... has an interesting history. It's the location of Fort Jefferson, a huge brick fortress that was constructed over a period of 30 years in the 19th century but never completed. It was built to protect the busy waters at the entrance to the Gulf, and was also a prison --Samuel Mudd was sent there, convicted for conspiring with John Wilkes Booth in the assassination of Lincoln. It was a miserable place to be incarcerated, with terrible conditions. When I read that I was astounded; that's bizarre given how gorgeous the waters are there: crystal clear, with coral and abundant fish. Ironically, it's...

Watch the video here: “It is, of course, a bird,” Attenborough is mashed up to say about a Spearow, before describing a lizard-like Charmander as a “top predator.” “Bats, with their fluttering zig zag flight are not easy targets,” he later narrates as a Zubat hoves into view. “That is one bat that will not return to the roost tonight,” he adds after it’s been caught by the player. The Irish website Lovin Dublin posted the clip to its Facebook page on July 14. It gained major traction online over the weekend and has now garnered more than 2.4 million...

Antony Spencer: Making"In a mad dash to outdo the rest of the photography world, it seems to me that landscape photographers are learning to do whatever it takes to an image to make theirs stand out in the quest for... popularity, especially online." says photographer Antony Spencer. So many of the images we see on a day to day basis are of the same locations over and over again." When you look at his work, it's easy to see how he's doing a pretty good job of holding himself to that statement.

Marvel's already had quite a Comic-Con thanks to its three upcoming Netflix series -- and that was all before Marvel's panel actually started. Now it's rolling out the the big names, and one trailer... that's getting shared outside of Hall H is for Doctor Strange. This is Marvel's first full trailer for Doctor Strange, following up a teaser it released in April. And the film continues to look every bit as interesting, like some weird, Marvel-ized Matrix. It's certainly a new vibe for Marvel movies. If you want a quick explanation for where all this comes from in the comics, we can catch you up right here.

If you were in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter last night, you couldn't have missed the hordes of Pokémon Trainers walking around in the game's distinctive red, yellow, and blue caps. Hundreds of people... had come together just outside the convention center to drink and play Pokémon Go, as part of an unofficial bar crawl put together over Facebook. That Comic-Con would be taken over by Pokémon Go is perhaps not all that surprising -- the game is just over two weeks old and still a phenomenon. What is surprising is that the huge gathering was largely put together by one fan. And it turned out to be one of the best events at the show.

When we look back at the first day of the inaugural Panorama festival here in New York City, we're going to remember one thing above all else: the heat. On a day when the temperature kept threatening... to crack triple digits, the music flying off of each stage was the only thing that could keep the festival's thousands of attendees cool. Major Lazer turned a typically quiet meadow into the site of the city's craziest dance party; Alabama Shakes blasted the crowds with light, sound, and color even as the sun was setting; Arcade Fire brought everyone back to life just as they could've been fading at the end of the night. The Verge's James Bareham spent the afternoon posted up at the Panorama Stage, where he captured Friday night's biggest...

New York City producer Jai Wolf stopped by The Verge lounge at Panorama today to hang out in virtual reality and nerd out about gadgets, the NSA, and Elon Musk. Lucky for you, we caught the whole... thing on Facebook Live. He toyed around with Google's Tilt Brush in the HTC Vive, and still managed to coherently answer a bunch of questions while stuck in VR. A little less coherently: when we asked him what he would have delivered by drone to the festival, he said pizza, despite the fact that there was already pizza 10 feet away. His favorite meme is Damn Daniel and his go-to karaoke song is "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion. Pizza, white Vans, and Celine Dion sounds like a pretty good night to us.

FX has released an eclectic first trailer for Legion, a new X-Men series from Marvel. Though the trailer doesn't make Legion's X-Men connection perfectly clear -- and, honestly, I'm not sure what this... trailer does make clear, since it's bouncing all over the place in terms of events and imagery -- it does start to show its main character's mutant powers. He's just not totally aware he has them yet, leading to some explosive results. The show follows a character named David Haller, who comic fans know as the mutant Legion. This series seems to be starting off with Legion's origin story, letting Haller discover the world of mutants and then become part of it. The series starts sometime in 2017. Another X-Men TV series is also in the works...

As per usual, there is always a chance it will not work out and one of the other bidders -- most likely Gilbert -- might lob in another offer once the terms...

The trailer has some material that we've seen before: Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander arrives in 1926 New York City along with a suitcase full of magical creatures. Predictably, they escape, putting magical authorities after Scamander, while throwing the magical world into disarray. There are two lines in particular that stand out: "We're going to recapture my creatures before they get hurt. They're currently in alien terrain,...
