Re: Sorry I missed Garden Stars

Chuck,

Sending prayers and good vibes for a speedy recovery!  Please tell her I said hi!  Miss seeing you guys at outreaches!  Hope everything else is fine.  I recently put my father in a nursing home because it became too much for my mother and I to take care of.  My mother passed out on my one night when she was up with him and ever since them I was doing most of the care in the night hours.  It was very draining.  He was starting to fall several times a day also and I ended up in the ER one day with him having 6 staples and then the same night he fell again and I was determined not to go back to the ER again.  We now know he is getting the proper care he needs and we are able to get rest.  Tell everyone hi.  If we ever get down to Virginia Beach we will try to attend one of the outreaches if any are going on.  
Take care,
Cheryl

Karen was discharged from the hospital about 7:45 PM last night.  6+ hours in the emergency room.  The good news is they don’t think it was anything more serious than a strained neck muscle.  But since it caused a bunch of grief (pain, numbness, tingling) for her on the left side of her face, they ran test after test just to be sure.  EKG was good, CT scan was clear blood and other bodily fluid tests were OK.  So after they all agreed, they sent her home with a prescription for a muscle relaxant and Motrin and a long list of things to watch for in the days to come.  

I hope you had a good showing at GS.  I got up this morning and set up the 80mm Orion semi-APO on the iOptron cube to play with it, since I assembled it all together for GS. And it is a pretty nice little rig.  I wouldn’t call it a grab-n-go scope, but it is darn close.

I continue to be amazed at th e quality and accuracy of this little iOptron cube.Best darn $500 I have EVER spent.  I plunked it down this morning and didn’t even let it finish its GPS stuff before I told it to go to Jupiter and it was in the center half of my finder scope when it came to rest.  I drug out the other non grab-n-go Meade 10” SCT and set them up for similar magnification 17mm in the Meade = 147 and a 5mm in the 80mm = 120X.  Kind of close, but the view in both was great.  Obviously the 10” gathers just a scad more light than the 3.1” and a bit more contrast brings out a bit more detail.  

I should set it up at an outreach even and show the moon in different telescopes at nearly the same  magnification.  Hmmmm  the 3.1 inch and the 14 inch side by side…

Anyways, it is a good thing Karen is OK.

Good things to look for today and tonight

Kent Blackwell
 

There's a large grouping of sunspots rolling around the eastern edge of the sun so we'll have several days to see them.

 

Even though the moon is in the sky tonight it will be an easy find for Comet C/2014 E3 Jacques. Locate the star Sadr in Cygnus (the center star of the "cross"). Put it at the SE edge of your finder field or binocular and look across the field to the NW; the comet will be hugging that edge. You won't be able to see it in the finder with the bright moon (not to mention light-pollution) but I saw it easily in my 4" refractor last night from downtown Kempsville.

 

How about a real challenge? Have you heard about the asteriod 2014 RC that is coming within 25,000 miles of earth on Sunday. By then it'll only be visible from the Southern Hemisphere but you can glimpse it tonight. At midnight look for the star Upsilon Aqr (it's near NGC 7293 The Helix). 2014 RC will be in the same telescope field of view as Upsilon Aqr. Easy? No, unfortunately it's 15th magnitude but I'd love to hear from anyone who might find it!

BBAA meeting at TCC

VegaGaze
 

Hello everyone!
The Night Sky Network is seeming to have some trouble sending email reminders about the meeting tomorrow, so hopefully this will make it to you all:

7:30PM - 9:00PM at TCC Virginia Beach, Science Building, Rm JC13 (room subject to change).
Please come out for our monthly meeting, see our new "Exploring the Solar System" toolkit, then Ken will have new planetarium show for us to see.
Hope to see you all there!

Boardwalk Astronomy

charles jagow
 

The weather guessers were so far off the mark last night it wasn't even close. I watched weather predictions on Accuweather, The Weather Channel and NOAA all day. They all painted a bleak picture. Overcast, hot with chance of showers increasing toward midnight.

At noon from my office windows out at Dam neck, it looked pretty cloudy. I bounced out of the building about 4:15 Pm and found it mostly sunny and HOT. I drove down to the boardwalk, about a fifteen minute drive up general Booth and then Atlantic. I found Dale already set up with a VERY limited amount of space for us to set up. Leftover vendor tents from the last weekend were still up. I unloaded the truck and setup my solar scope and began the usual bugging every passerby to look at the sun as I set up the 14".

The moon peeked out from behind some light clouds to the east in its full 1st quarter glory. Very faint against the blue sky. But an appealing target any way you see it. The sun was dismal. Only a few small sunspots and only a couple of prominences around the Northern limb. Lots of high thin clouds precluded it being jewel. Quite a few folks stopped and looked, not as much traffic as the previous month, but a higher percentage of people stopped to look as they passed by. I have "yet" to get the girls trotting by on the "alien blades" to stop yet. Some year they will get curious (or tired enough) to stop and gander. All who did peer were very impressed. When the sun became entangled with the crane and the structures surrounding the grassy park I put the solar scope away and concentrated on good old Luna.

About ten minutes after the sun disappeared below the horizon I found Saturn and it was "on". The big scope stayed on Saturn until 10:00 PM. I took the magnification over 200 power for a short while and then settled back in at about 160 X for the duration.

We ended up having clear skies and fairly good seeing most of the night. The biggest bother were those damn pesky sand flies. Biting the shins and ankles continuously.

No crazies or drunks last night, just lots of folks enjoying long looks as the line was never more than 10-12 people deep.

For the last Boardwalk event it was quite nice. Dale Carey, Chuck Dibbs and I noted that this was the first season we were NEVER rained out. Five full events held on the initially scheduled nights. Many thanks to all who showed up. I noticed Dale, Chuck, Mark & the wonder twins, Leigh Anne, the fellow with the scope set up with the cameras (my gnat like memory hasn't been able to recall his name all year, he shouldn't feel bad though - I still can't remember What's Her Name and we have been hanging out over 36 years...)

I believe we had a very good night and a great send off to the season. Here is looking forward to next year!

----

This will be the LAST public appearance for my Solarmax 60 HA scope. Ten years of faithful service and thousands upon thousands of eyes have looked at the sun through it. It will be sold to make room (pay for) a new Lunt 50mm scope that I should have in my possession before Christmas I hope. Seems like I have been on a waiting list forever.

Oh, and did I mention it was hot as blazes and those darn biting sand flies...

Here is an image of Comet Jacques (C/2014 E2) I captured last Wednesday morning between 1 - 2:30 am while it traveled among the stars of Cepheus.  It was very easy to find in my spotting scope and moved rapidly. Based on the comet’s movement in the subframes, it traveled approximately 9”/min which made short exposures necessary (39 x 45 seconds @ ISO3200). 

The FOV of the image is about 48 x 35 arcminutes, with the orientation 18 degrees east of north (astrometry.net).

Figured I would try something new and uploaded the image to Space Weather:

You can remove me from your e-mail list as I do not live in the area anymore.

We miss attending and helping with outreaches and miss seeing everyone in the club.  

 

Keep your head looking up,

Cheryl Colvin :)

I'll be there, but not until about 6:30ish (depending on when Jason gets out of work to watch the kiddos).
