Awaken To Astronomy

This is the newest version of a video I have been working on to promote astronomy. It is of moderate length (19:35 minutes). It is in HD 108p resolution video, though you can adjust that at the bottom if your computer won't run HD. I've added more images to the mix, and made other modifications. All of the photos are mine, except the image of me, which was taken by a member of the Louisville Astronomical Society. In addition, there is a very short video of a coronal mass ejection taken by the SDO probe. Have patience with it (I know it is a bit long - what Yes song isn't?), and you won't be disappointed, but you may be mesmerized. I've tried to give the stars the feeling of motion, hopefully without being chincy. There are some cool effects that will wow you, especially the final star sequence (with Vega changing colors). And please stay tuned all the way to the message at the end. Put it on the big screen, and crank it up! Enjoy...

Produced, directed, and edited by me (orogenicman), so I take all the credit (or blame).
