Lisa_1002: I was guessing you had a telescope, camera, gizmo thing
Larry 1008: Oh, my equipment? I bought some cheapo cardboard solar viewing glasses from Amazon a couple of years ago..not fancy, but they work (like $5 a pair, I think.)
Larry 1008: Duh OH! hit wrong key! anyway, no sunspot today either..maybe AR 2192 faded away.
Larry 1008: Hi, Lisa..didn
Lisa_1002: Hi Larry. What equipment do you use to view the Sun? Very cool you got to see the partial eclipse & a sunspot! A bonus
Larry 1008: I just looked at Sol for a spot..all clear now..will check again.
Larry 1008: Oh, the x flares..hope we avoid a big hit from one of those..the other day KSCO was coming in choppy, Bill Graff told the show host it was from sunspot activity..AR2192? the new usual suspect?
Larry 1008: Thanks for the link, Lisa..AR2192 musta been what I saw..right time for the 72 hr rotation..cool..gonna see if I can see it again..tomorrow Wed? will report back.
Lisa_1002: 'Freakish' Sunspot Wows Astronomers [link]
Lisa_1002: And did you know about the x flares?
Lisa_1002: You saw the partial eclipse? Neato
Larry 1008: I saw the solar eclipse on the 23rd..a little after 4:00..looked like a bite out of the sun at aprox. 11:30 o'clock..sunspot visible too...cool. Well, hot.
Larry 1008: Thanks for the link, Lisa..interesting stuff..hope we get to see some cool pictures of it from our equipment up there.
Lisa_1002: Comet's close encounter with Mars a boon for science [link]
Lisa_1002: The Siding Spring comet would have been a fun subject for the show.
Lisa_1002: As per a sciency sort of person for the show, I'll keep a watch out...
Lisa_1002: Ah yes the Siding Spring comet?
Larry 1008: Oh, guess Mars is gonna get a hair cut from a comet..maybe the media will blow it out of proportion like Mr.Logic said, that way we can see it clearly..Ha ha lol.
Larry 1008: Hi, Lisa..I hope you're right..I sent MZ a suggestion re: a really sciency (Is that a real word?) guy I know, if you have any ideas, email MZ about them..he was asking for suggestions on Sat. Spec.
Lisa_1002: Hi Larry....very true. I am sure MZ will find the right person for the job.
