Levitating Helicopter Illusion

There are many videos going around showing helicopters flying apparently without the aid of their rotors. Here is the best example of this type of illusion to date.

Why does it look as if the helicopter is levitating without power? Is it possible that the helicopter is on a wire being lifted by a second copter just out of sight? I think that this is a Top-Secret test of a helicopter fitted with an anti-gravity prototype device, caught on tape by conspiracy theorists. Remember, just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you.

The answer to this question is simple enough. The frame rate of the camera and the copter are in sync thus creating the illusion of a copter being able to fly without it's rotors turning. The fact is the rotors are turning like always it just doesn't show with this camera setup. Or is that just what they want you to believe?

Here is a military test of the anti-gravity device caught on tape. This one uses the Mi24 helicopter seen here in this image.

This military Mi-24 HIND was the first helicopter to enter service with the Russian Air Force as an assault transport and gunship.

So what is the true reason these helicopters can fly without their rotors turning?

Triple Sunrise Illusion

Here is another illusion found on the Astronomy Picture of the Day. I stumbled upon it via Tricks and Illusions.

See Explanation.  Clicking on the picture will download  the highest resolution version available.

Triple Sunrise
Credit & Copyright: Jim Hoida

Explanation: Today, the Sun rises due east at the Equinox, a geocentric astronomical event that occurs twice a year. To celebrate, consider this view of the rising Sun and a lovely set of ice halos recorded on a cold winter morning near Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA, planet Earth. Produced by sunlight shining through common atmospheric ice crystals with hexagonal cross-sections, such halos can actually be seen more often than rainbows. The remarkable sunrise picture captures a beautiful assortment of the types most frequently seen, including a sun pillar (center) just above the rising Sun surrounded by a 22 degree halo arc. Completing a triple sunrise illusion, sundogs appear at the far left and far right edges of the 22 degree arc. An upper tangent arc is also just visible at the very top of the view.

Erik Axdahl

Erik has a blog called The Chronicles of Spaceman Axdahl and he had this to say about this photo he shot.
"I was poking through my hard drive and found this delicious morsel that I took last Winter outside of New Ulm, MN with my four year-old Canon Powershot A20 digicam.

What you see is a parhelion, better known as sun dogs.

Sun dogs are produced when the clouds between the Sun and the observer contain ice crystals rather than droplets. They always occur at twenty-two degrees on either side of the sun.

Being a nerd, when I first saw this I panicked and honked madly at the car I was following to pull over so I could take this shot. My day was then officially made."

Straight Red Strips?

Here is an optical illusion created by Herman J. Verwaal from his deformation series

Herman points out the red strips appear to be deformed where they cross the fluorescent lights. I agree the red strips seem to narrow as they cross the lights. Even more fascinating to me is that the red strips seem darker where they cross the lights. Yes the red strips only seem darker.

The fact is that the red strips have a red green blue measurement of R:246, G:4, B:0. No matter where in the strip you measure the color is constant. I find this fascinating because the red in each strip, where it crosses the light, appears to darken.

The bottom line is that the red strips above are perfectly straight and the shade of red does not change at any point in this image.

Herman has an excellent collection of Pop Art, Paintings, and Optical illusions. He has given me permission to feature his pieces here. This is just one of many. His illusion art ranges from color perception to distorted illusions.

Thank You for sharing these excellent illusions Herman.

Smiling Moon : Planets Align in a Frown

Monday night (December 1, 2012) there was a bright cosmic frown in the sky. The planets Jupiter and Venus briefly aligned forming two eyes and a moon forming a smiling mouth.

Jupiter is much larger than Venus, it appeared dimmer, because the latter planet is so much closer to Earth.Plus, Jupiter is much farther away from the sun than Venus, so the light bouncing off it is much less intense than the light bouncing off Venus, which hasn't had to travel so far.

It is called a planetary conjunction, the two planets -the brightest in the night sky -appeared extremely close. They won't be this close together and well-placed for viewing again until May 2013.

Up the Down Staircase

Here is a real life example of "Schröder's staircase" illusion. This optical illusion is one of the more famous, classic reversible figures. Can you see the stairs right side up and upside down?

Here is the classic version of the illusion.

Schröder's staircase

Looking at the illusion above, if the green wall is closest to you then you will be walking upside down. If the pink wall is closest to you then you are walking upright. Either way you are walking on the same blue treads. Of course if your willing to walk sideways then you can use the black treads.

Flickering Fog Illusion

Just like you did for the other Illusions before, stare intently at the red dot in the center of the left block for about a couple of minutes. Once you've done this, look over to the center of the right block. It should act weird - by fading out and 'flickering'. If you move your head closer and further from the monitor (while focussing in the center), you should see some interesting interference effects too.

Op Art Composition

Op Art Composition #6 by David Lewis-Baker.
One of a series of digital pieces inspired by the Op Art movement of the 1960s and '70s, especially the works of the English artist Bridget Riley.

These works are also somewhat reminiscent of the woodblock works of inter-war German expressionists.
