I'm Bill.
This is a Science/Science Fiction blog. I make Gifs, I edit astrophotography. you will find these things here, as well as original photography by me.I work in TV and film, I do mostly art related stuff, and I vaguely look like that guy who peeked his head in at the beginning of original Dawn of the Dead

This set of three images shows views three seconds apart as the larger of Mars’ two moons, Phobos, passed directly in front of the sun as seen by NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity.  Curiosity photographed this annular, or ring, eclipse with the telephoto-lens camera of the rover’s Mast Camera pair (right Mastcam) on Aug. 20, 2013, the 369th Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity’s work on Mars.
