    These are all good! Especially, I want to thank noClue for posting those “dark city” wallpapers – I’ve admired them for some time, and often thought they would be a nice addition to my rotation… Thanks!

    Here is some from Qosmic,
    I think evolvotron yields better results but I’ll play
    around with the settings some.

    Here’s a few more for everyone from the qosmic program.
    earlier I wrote:
    I think evolvotron yields better results
    I was refering to the resolution vs. filesize.
    the ones from evolvotron are alot (few hundred kb) smaller
    than qosmic (several mb) in size for the same screen size.
    btw christophe your last shot should be in the screenshot thread. 🙂

    Here’s a couple more for
    everyone to enjoy.
    Can someone take the ones with the date stamp
    on them off here… unless someone can remove the date stamp?

    NASA has a “pic of the day” that you can download. I have it on a daily cron job.

    Sorry, the site won’t allow me to post it. I give up.

    PS: I also created a script to download pics from the past at 30 second intervals, but can’t post that correctly, either

    the site is at
    https://api.nasa.gov/planetary/apod?api_key=DEMO_KEY&date=2019-05-27

    and on it there is a link to the picture file…
    {“copyright”:”Diego Rizzo”,”date”:”2019-05-27″,”explanation”:”Sometimes it’s hard to decide which is more impressive — the land or the sky. On the land of the featured image, for example, the Volcano of Fire (Volc\u00e1n de Fuego) is seen erupting topped by red-hot, wind-blown ash and with streams of glowing lava running down its side. Lights from neighboring towns are seen through a thin haze below. In the sky, though, the central plane of our Milky Way Galaxy runs diagonally from the upper left, with a fleeting meteor just below, and the trail of a satellite to the upper right. The planet Jupiter also appears toward the upper left, with the bright star Antares just to its right. Much of the land and the sky were captured together in a single, well-timed, 25-second exposure taken in mid-April from the side of Fuego’s sister volcano Acatenango in Guatemala. The image of the meteor, though, was captured in a similar frame taken about 30 minutes earlier — when the volanic eruption was not as photogenic — and added later digitally. Follow APOD on: Instagram, Facebook, Reddit, or Twitter”,”hdurl”:”https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/image/1905/FuegoMilkyWay_Rizzo_3000.jpg”,”media_type”:”image”,”service_version”:”v1″,”title”:”A Volcano of Fire under a Milky Way of Stars”,”url”:”https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/image/1905/FuegoMilkyWay_Rizzo_1080.jpg”}

    I think the code should be (but the website here screws it up due to it interpreting the backtics as code start and end markers, and won’t allow me to post a .zip or .gz). Sorry, its not that I didn’t try a bunch of times:

    wget curl "https://api.nasa.gov/planetary/apod?api_key=DEMO_KEY&date=$(date -d "today" '+%Y-%m-%d')" | jq .url | tr -d '"'

    Here is the script to download the pics for a range of dates. It looks like you are limited to 50 per day.:

    #!/bin/sh
    
    # wallpaper_dl_nasa_mult.sh - downloads days up to today of pic of the day files from NASA
    
    # depends:
    # sudo apt-get install wget curl jq
    
    start='2019-01-01'
    end='today'
    
    cd $HOME/wallpapers
    start=$(date -d $start +%Y%m%d)
    end=$(date -d $end +%Y%m%d)
    
    echo "Downloading NASA pic of the day friles from $start to $end"
    
    while [ $start -le $end ]
    do
            echo "...getting pic for $start"
    		wget <code>curl &quot;https://api.nasa.gov/planetary/apod?api_key=DEMO_KEY&date=$(date -d &quot;$start&quot; '+%Y-%m-%d')&quot; | jq .url | tr -d '&quot;'</code>
            start=$(date -d"$start + 1 day" +"%Y%m%d")
    		sleep 30
    done

    you can save the code as a txt file then upload it.

    @ 2manypipes

    nice pics … never been to other countries besides the US.
    It’s good to see them in this thread and the surroundings thread.
    Here’s a couple I took recently for everyone to enjoy.

    beta/alpha setups. Here’s a couple from evolvotron for everyone.
