For the Midnight Sun film I'm working on...
OK tell me which is correct - the Sun moving from left to right or right to left?
The panorama always confuses me for which is N,S,E,W. At least I know which is up and down rolleyes.gif

Left to right. In the southern hemisphere it'd be the other way around...

That's correct.

The 10:00 PM / 22:00 position is on the left, the 2:00 AM / 02:00 Hrs position on the right. Midnight dead ahead. That montage covers a 4 hour sweep, though spread out over 11 sols.

It seemed unbelievable that something that big had not been visible before". Linda Morabito on discovering that the Jupiter moon Io was volcanically active. Friday 9th March 1979.

Remember it's done as an artist's view, not the pure science.
I leave that stuff to the smart people on the forum.

Enjoy

Thanks all.
Getting an Oscar was always a childhood dream of mine.

I can't lay claim to the music though. It comes from an online free music source, where you can use pieces for not-for-profit efforts. I thought it was appropriate, giving a lonely, desolate feel to the scene.

Appreciate all the feedback.

I enjoyed that myself. Somehow seeing the sun and the dimming and brightening of the ambient light make Mars that much more real. Thank you.

Very Cool - I loved the moving tell-tale!


BTW: if anyone wants to create a tell-tale emoticon, I'd love to use it in all sorts of settings!

I'm sure one of the technically minded Admin people could accommodate the request.
