The Sun in Motion
Caught a glimpse of the Sun lately? The Sun in Motion is a multimedia experience presenting solar phenomena IMAX-style. Marvel at the intricate magnetic structures of sunspots, filaments, and prominences before delving into the luminous regions of plage. Compare the beauty of C-class solar flares that create beautiful auroras to an X-class flare that disrupts GPS satellites. Explore the brief life of countless spicules that make up the entire solar surface and much more. Gary's enthusiasm will catapult you through the adventure with zeal and cleverness that will ignite your curiosity to explore the closest star.
Gary Palmer was born in Culver City, California near the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios. For Gary, photography has been his life's passion. It comes as no surprise that in 1973 he took off for the foot lights and began his career in motion pictures at Paramount Pictures. Today his career as a Lighting Designer and Cinematographer spans over 3 and a half decades and has taken him around the world. It's easy says Gary to become immersed in the tranquility of the night sky, but for him his focus kept returning to the Sun, after all it's a source of life. So come along and experience the Sun in Motion as seen through the eyes of a passionate, energized, solar explorer named Gary Palmer. Until then, enjoy Gary's SolarIMAX-style views @ theSuninMotion.com.
