Look! A pretty picture! It’s really just to get your attention, though. Lol I have a question. What is your go-to news source? (Reputable sources, any political leanings accepted)
If you’re friends with me long enough, you know I think echo chambers are dangerous. Therefore, I try to listen to different sides of any given situation because as the saying goes, “There are three sides to any story...his, yours and the truth.” .
Today I read an article about how social media algorithms, which are meant to grow revenue (and to that effect, your addiction to social media), intentionally create an echo chamber around you by sorting out content that either has a moderate message (it’s easier to hook you with strong emotional content), or doesn’t fall in line with your interests.
In turn, the author believes that it is adding to the cultural/social/political divide we are seeing in this country. Furthermore, I’ve noticed in my own life that it’s sometimes hard to find alternate informed viewpoints (despite refusing to customize my news app, for example). I firmly believe that in order to make informed/sound decisions and compromises (looking at you, White House and Congress), it’s imperative that we not be surrounded solely by people parroting and reinforcing our ideas. So to that end, my goal is to start following more news outlets so I can be a more responsible and informed citizen. (I encourage y’all to do the same!) Add your go-to news source in the comments please!
A great big thank you to Kevin O’Malley and @jdroto9 for their input /naming help on this shot. Another huge thank you to @shawn.farrell.crahan for being a spectacular road trip partner in Colorado (even though he napped through this shot.) The photo feels like an analogy for our current state of affairs. There is chaos on the ground (thanks to wind blowing through the flower-y foreground plants), as a stark contrast to the well defined, organized night sky.

- Silence is all I have heard
When I was whole you left me with no words
When you left. There was no words left to say
You came back. But the words never made it out
Now that you are fleeing again, I have nothing to say
I want to be freed again!

When I founded The World at Night (TWAN) project 12 years ago with an international team of highly experienced night sky photographers, one of the main aims was to save the last remaining natural night skies on the planet by photos and stories that tell the values of this essential part of our nature, beyond being an astronomer’s laboratory. This is one of those places: La Palma, Canary Islands, where the night sky is protected by law, against light pollution; the extra careless light that doesn’t illuminates the ground but wastes to the sky. The locals appreciate this preserved heritage too which made their island an icon.
Here the Milky Way’s bright core rises over salt production ponds next to the ocean, in a single 20-second exposure photograph. This resembles what I was able to see visually there, but without the Milky Way’s color.

- MOON WALKING. Leaving this here because I am very proud of my fiance who "just" went to the roof of our building to take some pictures and came back with the moon. 🌙
