From the site:
The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History.
Every year I make a calendar from my photos. This year, I tried a new source (Qoop.com), and it came out pretty good.
Most of the shots are from Maine, and all were taken in the corresponding month of 2009. Anybody can purchase a calendar at my cost ($14.99).
