      Oh, quel effet "trippant"!

      The effect and colours probably originating from some quite ordinary object create a very pretty picture.

      Reminds me of the gravitational interaction between two planets, viewed over a time long enough to blur the orbits into oscillating, precessing ellipses... more here.

      "lights and water" to befriend your "photonic abyss" .

      Sounds quite recursive... Actually looks recursive as well.

      Benjiman: my money is on Vanita.

      oklo: nice analogy... In this system, the inner dynamic is directly coupled to the smooth outer orbit. Do you know fellow exoplanet hunter Greg Laughlin ? I visited him at the Lick Observatory

      We're one and the same...

      It's funny how flickr makes a whole lot of sense as soon as you get a camera!

      I am loving what am witnessing here... =)

      Close Encounters of the flickr kind...

      oklo: that is so funny! That is one way of "finding" each other again!

      Playing Tempest well, was like docking a sailboat at the speed of light.

      But how can you "miss" Tempest? It didn't go anywhere!

      Nice to see the TechCrunch guys are keeping tabs on your photos for illustrating their articles!

      Yeah, I guess it's hard to find a good visual for spectrum auctions.... =)
