Artist's Description

THIS SHOT IS OF ORION’S NEBULAE AND “THE HOUSE NEXT DOOR”. THE LIGHT ON HIS HOUSE IS FROM A STREET LIGHT THAT IS JUST TO MY EAST ON THE SOUTH PROPERTY LINES BETWEEN ME AND MY NEIGHBOR TO MY EAST. SO, NOT ONLY DOES IT LIGHT UP MY NEIGHBORS HOUSE, IT ALSO PROVIDES THE NIGHT LIGHT FOR MY AMERICAN FLAG THAT I PUT IN AFTER THE SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 TERRORIST ATTACKS. I HAVE FLOWN A FLAG EVERY DAY SINCE THEN, DAY AND NIGHT. AS LONG AS I AM ALIVE, THE FLAG WILL FLY ON THAT POLE. BUT, BACK TO THE PHOTO, I USED MY CANON EOS DIGITAL REBEL, WITH MY CANON ULTRASONIC AF 18-55 ZOOM LENS, SET ON 55MM. THE TIME OF THE SHUTTER WAS 15 SECONDS, I THINK THE NEXT TIME I TRY THIS I WILL GO FOR 10 SECONDS IN HOPES THAT THE LIGHTS IN THE SKY WON’T BE BLURRED ANY. WHEN I TOOK THIS SHOT IN CALIFORNIA’S NIGHT SKY, IT WAS EARLY MARCH, 2009. EVERY TIME I LOOK UP IN THE NIGHT SKY, I THINK HOW FANTASTIC IT WOULD BE TO TRAVEL INTO SPACE, JUST LIKE THE TELEVISSION SHOW, STAR TREK PORTRAYS. I DON’T KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE IN OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCES, OR ASTRAL TRAVELING, BUT IN A MEDITATIVE STATE JUST BEFORE RELM SLEEP, I HAD AN OUT OF BODY SPACE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE. I SAW MYSELF FLY PAST THE MOON, OUT PAST MARS, JUPITER, SATURN, URANUS, NEPTUNE, PLUTO. I STILL CONSIDER PLUTO A PLANET, AND FAR OUT INTO SPACE UNTIL I CAME UPON THE NEBULAE OF ORION’S NEBULAE. I WENT BEYOND THE DUST CLOUDS THAT BLOCK OUR VIEW INTO THE NEBULAE, AND I SAW THE NEW STARS BEING BORN. THEN JUST AS FAST, OR IF NOT FASTER, I RETURNED TO MY BODY, AT WHICH POINT, MY PHYSICAL BODY JUMPED STRAIGHT UP INTO THE AIR ABOUT 1 FOOT HIGH AND CAME BACK DOWN ON THE MATRESS. WHEN I WOKE UP FROM THE RETURNING, MY MEMORIES WERE CLEAR ENOUGH AND IMPRESSIVE ENOUGH, THAT I REMEMBER EVERY VIEW OF THAT EXPERIENCE IN MY MIND TO THIS DAY.
