If you haven’t noticed yet, I love videos. I love videos of space, of asteroids, of storms and of Earth. I love videos because I’m more of a visual learner and I have a short attention span. I like to imagine that some of you have similar preferences, so I enjoy sharing them with you. This Free For All is a couple of videos I’ve stumbled upon that are so neat that I think you should enjoy them too. So open them up to full screen, sit back and enjoy!

Using a wide-angle fisheye lens, Stephane Guisard captures the entire night sky with the Milky Way at its zenith. The rotating objects in the periphery are the four telescopes that make up the Very Large Telescope array (VLT) targeting varies points in space. (© Stéphane Guisard)

So as not to disappoint my short attention span, this is an image (not a video) of the NGC3344 spiral Galaxy. It is just so darn pretty I had to share it, lucky you! (Image Credit: Adam Block/Mount Lemmon SkyCenter/University of Arizona)
