Sun Balcony


↟ “Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it we go nowhere.” — Carl Sagan; astrophysicist, awesomist.

My favorite place in NYC is of course, The Rose Center for Earth and Space. In the center of this building is an object called the “Hayden Sphere” which serves as the museum’s planetarium and Sun (Sol) replica. I always imagined what this object would look like as an actual star—in the center of everything, which inspired this Cinemagraph.

Sun Balcony

I love this picture. To me it looks like the observation deck from a hotel orbiting close to the Sun. – Miles
