Space... The Final Cinnamon

Ha! I got your attention again! At this same craft fair, Bill Snyder displayed his "Dark Sky Art." At first appearance, Bill is a nondescript older guy. But when you talk to him, you can hear the intelligence in his work, in his descriptions of his craft and how he puts together his pieces.

With his equipment, he took pictures of the sky, specifically different elements of the nebulae. Sulpher, he colored red, oxygen he colored blue, and hydrogen was mapped to the green channel of the photos. The levels were then adjusted to balance out the colors and make an art piece.

This method is NASA standard.
