 24 Hours of Flickr

I can’t wait!!

“To celebrate this global community, we invite you to join us in “24 Hours of Flickr” – a day-long global photo project. On May 5, 2007, grab your camera and whatever else you need, and chronicle your day in pictures. The group’s photos will be featured at Flickr events around the world this summer and in a companion book, which will contain a selection of photographs chosen from the group (more about this soon!).”

Especially since I just now realized I missed International Pinhole Camera Photography Day yesterday. Damn.

Saw Dave Tamkin perform acoustic guitar on Tuesday eve. Great, refreshing sound – listen to “Julieann.” I took some photos and he posted them on his myspace page!

 daily palette

My new favorite daily-web-thing is The Daily Palette, a project by the University of Iowa to highlight the state’s artists – writers, painters, photographers, sculptors, video artists, etc. Something new everyday from someone in Iowa!

AURORA WATCH: A solar wind stream is heading for Earth and it could cause a geomagnetic storm when it arrives on April 21st or 22nd. Sky watchers from Scandinavia to Alaska should be alert for auroras.

 

WEEKEND METEORS: Earth is entering the dusty tail of Comet Thatcher, and this will cause a mild meteor shower this weekend. It’s called the Lyrid meteor shower because the bits of incandescent comet dust appear to come from the constellation Lyra. The best time to look is during the dark hours before dawn on Sunday, April 22nd, and Monday, April 23rd, when you can expect to see a shooting star overhead every 5 minutes or so: sky map.
