Time flowing,
Sun, the same,
People evolving,
Cosmic game.

--Andrei Dorian Gheorghe, Romania

The Romanian Society for Meteors and Astronomy (SARM) invites you to see two small cosmopoetic stories based on photographic visions of the Sun, which are separated in time by almost 50 years:

The first vision is a romantic one and was made by Nicolae Tudor in the 1960s, being connected to the Danube River:

Old Photo-Memories from the Lower Danube

The second vision is connected to the ISS transits over the Sun’s disk in May 2011, and demonstrates the technical progress of humanity.  It was made by a terrible Romanian team of astrophotographers (Alex Conu, Maximilian Teodorescu, Catalin Paduraru, Vlad Dumitrescu, Mihai Curtasu and Catalin Fus), and seems to be a new international astrophotography record…  You’ll see why:
