Speaking of awesomeness and astronomy, a lunar eclipse will occur during the evening hours on the 14th (Australia, New Zealand, Japan, etc.) and the wee hours of the morning on the 15th (most of the Western Hemisphere, UK, extreme western Europe, etc.).

Such a pretty post.

The US can see it, When?

I love a good lunar eclipse.

August 2003, I believe. There was a hoax going around at the time that it would appear as big as the moon. In fact, it was about 3.5x brighter than it was during this year's opposition.

By the way, I said before Mars was in conjunction... turns out it's actually opposition when it's on the same side as us. Dafuq? To my mind, opposition = opposite = opposite side of the sun. Stupid astronomers naming things confusingly.

Telescopes are pretty useless when it's cloudy every day, but I think it would be cool to have a good microscope. Something like this handheld one would be convenient, and I would spend days just looking at random things.

I got to play artemis: bridge simulator for the first, time, and it was grand.

artemis is awesome. I never particularly liked engineering personally, it seemed like it was mostly a matter of ok, we're going into battle so I'll go to these settings and then leaving it until the fight's over before changing back to something else. I suspect manual damcon teams make it more interesting and it's been a while since I played so they may have added more stuff.

Taking that photo involved no optics whatsoever. At least, no lens-based optics. It's a newtonian reflector, so it's all done by mirrors, no lenses. The webcam, I actually removed the lens that was already on there to fully expose the CMOS sensor, so not even any optics at that end. The downside was that the IR cut-off filter was built into the lens assembly, so any images taken with the modified webcam are bathed in infrared light. It throws the colour balance right off and makes things a bit blurry.

Here's Mars.

Image

Not really much to see, other than the merest hint of some dark albedo features. Really need to either get a proper astronomy camera or a new IR cut-off filter for this one.

Frankly, Scarlett;
You need both.

We are Human!
We need to look up.
We need to look down.

Some people do not understand those needs.
That does not stop them from being needs.

Spoiler:
Somewhere in my imaginary world,
we have public equipment.

I know we can't have unauthorized personal wandering around at all times of the day and night.
Still. A person with a little interest should be able to wander into a Public Building and say, "I want to look though a microscope."

I did.
I got to look through a microscope.

It is not all that great, at first.

I got to look through a Public Telescope, too.
And; A Private one bought with Public Money.

Not everyone Needs their very own equipment.
How often do most people look at the stars?
How often do most people want to see an invisible thing?

At least Stars are there for Normal People.
Microbes are invisible without special Priest Gear.

To this very day, many Common People do not believe in Microbes.

its never really just a defualt amount of settings. combat usually requires more systems than you have coolant to run. there is always something to do, and the best engineers *cough me cough cough* will have systems powered right before the captain asks for them, and always at the right settings. I would say the engineer probably has more to do with the success of the team than any other single position (except maybe captain. that job is HARD)

I head out tomorrow to go see some friends in Vegas for a week before moving on to Hawaii. I have a friend who works at Zappos, which has a special deal with the Downtown Grand hotel in downtown Las Vegas, so I was able to use their Friends & Family discount. I got eight days for $421.75 instead of the normal rate of $722! :D

I know, it's a very bad habit, I'm not proud of it and I'm not trying to do it again. But what the heck, awesome is awesome.

Skipped all classes, started reading all course material 3 days before final, pulled an all-nighter the night before... aced the shit out of that exam! Take that, personal responsibility!

Spoiler:
Plus, all-nighters feel so good. Just being in your room at 6am, watching the sunrise over the silent city and the empty streets... the birds starting to sing... realizing how much time you lose every night... not having to wake up sleepy and grumpy...

Went and saw Lindsey Stirling in Boston on Tuesday. Holy shit she rocked the f out.

Also, went to the beach the next day, and lost my glasses when the tide came in and knocked over the chair. Didn't realize said glasses had fallen out, so I didn't know to look for them immediately. Went to leave after an hour, and couldn't find my glasses.

After searching for half an hour or so in 1 ft deep water, I was about to give up... and kicked them. Total win.
