GIF: Carl Sagan Becomes the Sun

sagan_sun

One of the most often repeated Carl Sagan quotes is about how all of everything is made from star stuff. Over at Flickr, Max Capacity +, recently posted an impressionistic take on this statement. The result is mesmerizing.

In creating this, it looks like Max took captured a few seconds of Cosmos, where Sagan looks up admirably at the sun as the sun fades into the shot. These frames, were then looped, processed to red-orange side of the spectrum and out as a GIF.
