Sparse Pickings

Apologies for the dearth of material posted here of late. Things have been pretty ho-hum for a while, with work and the odd recreational endeavor after work. The sun is getting quite low in the sky, and the temperatures are starting to near -70°F. There will be the usual nice dinner this weekend, as well as an extra day off for those folks that get days off. Those of us who don’t won’t. I have started to get instructions and timelines for transitioning some of my projects to winter science collection, but the first will not be for several weeks yet, since twilight takes a while to get deep enough for observations to begin. With all the solar flares lately, there has been plenty of action for the space weather projects to monitor, so hopefully we’ll keep getting a good deal of that through the winter, when we can actually see the auroras associated with all that.

I intend to get some photos out and about today and over the next few days, so there should be some fodder for posting when we have the satellite connection.
