This fine little film about the cosmos and the author’s perspective on it is really charming. I saw it online yesterday when its creator, Robert M. Powell, posted it during a science discussion. Bob is an amateur astronomer in Mequon, Wisconsin, and relishes his time under the stars.
Titled “My sacred space,” it describes in brief the joy that Powell feels when under the sky at night with his telescope. He submitted it to WGBH in Boston as a short video entry in late 2010. In two minutes and fifty-two seconds, Bob’s movie pretty well summarizes what our hobby is all about. I think you’ll enjoy it.
