Anthony Davis dunked the sun

If we can put men on the moon, then why not have someone dunk the sun.

In a promotional shoot for Red Bull, Chicago-born NBA star Anthony Davis and photographer Dustin Snipes did just that.

Snipes wrote for PetaPixel:

Red Bull recently came to me with an interesting idea: “We’d like you to photograph NBA star Anthony Davis dunking the sun.”

I responded, “Can we also have him dunk the moon?”

My mind started racing with ideas on how to capture this properly because as most people, know the sun is a very bright object that’s about 93 million miles away — I totally knew that off the top of my head. Not to mention, it’s also very hard to look at for more than a brief moment.

The results are amazing!
