Wonderful video by Project Yosemite, accentuated by M83′s epic “Lower Your Eyelids to Die With the Sun” from Before the Dawn Heals Us.
The universe is a pretty amazing place, isn’t it? Every once in awhile, the sky clears above Chicagoland, sweeping away the smog and pesticide haze. Usually it’s the cold weather that does it. This photo would not have been possible if the temperature did no plummet that evening.

I’m pleased to announce that my exoplanet biological research story, “Divinity” has been purchased for publication by Perihelion Science Fiction. This is my fourth sale to Perihelion, and I’m thrilled to be working with editor Sam Bellotto Jr once more.
I’ll post a release date as soon as it becomes available.

They have great taste in where they build nests and breed.
Welcome back, weary travelers.
Great new song from M83. I have no idea what the movie is about. Have yourself a listen:
