Black Rain

April 12, 2009

Black Rain is sourced from images collected by the twin satellite, solar mission, STEREO. Here we see the HI (Heliospheric Imager) visual data as it tracks interplanetary space for solar wind and CME's (coronal mass ejections) heading towards Earth.

Beautiful and mesmerizing, if a bit creepy. There's something very Kubrick about it. (See also Brilliant Noise.)
