Amazing Pic - A star in motion.
This guy's pictures always amazed me, but his account had been silent for a long while. This picture he posted a bit ago seems simple until you realize what has been captured.

Just for giggles I went out to look at it and it is indeed color shifting like mad.

I still don't understand why it "winks" like it does. It twinkles more than other stars I observe. Why is that?

 Quoting: Éireann


It’s not just Sirius that twinkles; all stars twinkle. Light travels many light years from stars and right at the end of its journey, it hits Earth’s atmosphere, which consists of nitrogen, oxygen and other gasses.

Earth’s atmosphere is constantly swirling around, and wind and air currents etc distort light travelling through it. This causes the light to slightly bend or shimmer and the light from distant stars twinkle. An extreme, more down-to-Earth example of this would be heat rising off of a road or a desert causing objects behind it to distort, shimmer and change colour.

Thank you, Whiskey Brother.

I do understand why stars twinkle. I'm just curious why Sirius seems to twinkle more than others. Great link!

my guess is, that the different wavelengths get separated thanks to our horizont in our atmosphere
the speeds of perception of these colors - like we are getting it, is different (R_slowest...G_faster...B_first)
