Thanks for visiting Sky Lights! If you’re reading this you probably have an interest in science. Nurture that interest. We need more scientists. After 30 years of teaching science I’m still trying to help. I’ve kept my blog free of popups, banners, and ads since Day 1. My motivation is education. I enjoy helping teachers, students, home-schoolers, and curious minds. The only ads you’ll ever see are on this page.
Sky Lights is a production of Heimhenge Enterprises. We create HD animations for science, some of which have been down-sampled for use in my posts. The animations you see in Sky Lights are generally 700×525 @ 10-30 fps, but the original versions are in HD (1080×810 or 1080×720 @ 30 fps).
We have an assortment of animations, each with Teachers Notes containing detailed information, images, and links for further study. Other products for educators include science publications for reference, testing, and experiments. All products are priced in “micropayments” at US $1-3, and we take PayPal as well as all major credit cards. Free product previews are available. Check back occasionally as we continue to add new products.
If you’re an educator, you’ll find an entire page of interesting and useful classroom materials available for FREE at Heimhenge Enterprises. No annoying ads, no registration, easy downloads. New teachers tell me they’ve found these materials especially helpful.
If you’re main interest is astronomy, and you’re just starting out in this hobby, my “Easy Field Guides to the Night Sky” would be a great place to start. They’ve been in print since 1998 from American Traveler Press, and have introduced countless curious minds to the wonders of astronomy.
Does Sky Lights help you teach? Does it help you learn. Do you appreciate pure science uncluttered by bias or ads? If you’d like to support this project, thank you! Just click on the button below.
