    Inspired by a Tutorial on Abduzeedo website called: "Really cool Eclipse Effect in Photoshop"

    Psalm 19:1 (KJV): The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
    “The requirements for producing a total eclipse of the sun are a luminous body, in our case the sun an eclipsing body (in our case, the moon)…and an observer platform (in our case the surface of the Earth). And they all have to be in a straight line in space. The apparent size of the moon in the sky has to be almost exactly the same as the apparent size of the sun of the sky. They’re both about half a degree.” The sun is four hundred times bigger than the moon, but it’s four hundred times further away. So, there’s this coincidence people have noted for centuries…but they just said, ‘oh well, it’s a coincidence’…and shrugged their shoulders…”

    “Really, you can think of eclipses as a giant natural experiment, a set up that allows us to observe a part of the sun that’s critical towards understanding how its light is produced in its atmosphere.”

    Bijan Nemati
    “The fact that the Earth is going around the sun and the moon is around the Earth, and the sizes and the distances between the Earth and the moon and the sun are just so to give you a perfect solar eclipse is a wondrous thing because it allows us to measure the constituents of the upper layer of the sun’s atmosphere.”

    “And so you have to have a nearly perfect match between the sun and the moon so you don’t hide the chromosphere. And that insight, afforded by eclipses in the nineteenth century, is what finally permitted astronomers to figure out how the spectra of distant stars are produced. That, really opened up stellar astrophysics and allowed us to understand how other stars work…because distant stars, after all, are other suns.”


    “That experiment was only possible during eclipses because the stars become visible during a total eclipse.They are very important to the history of science, and…the best place in the entire solar system to view solar eclipses is from the surface of the Earth. I’ve actually calculated the circumstances for eclipses from all the other planets and all the other moons (about sixty five of them), the major moons. And, its an amazing coincidence that the one place that has observers, is the one place that has the best eclipses.

    “The same narrow circumstances that allow us to exist also provide us with the best overall setting for making scientific discoveries.”

      Oooooh this is such a cool graphical illustration of that scripture.

      Amazing facts that prove that God is trustworthy. I especially love the verse in John 8:12 Jesus is amazing and I still am amazed about how He changes my life and me as a person.

      Great work here bro!
