I was going to say something really mean like:

Really? You guys act like your doing something ground breaking here. It's just a telescope looking at the same shit that's been there for how long?


But I decided not too...

Well, you just said it. If you don't like it you don't have to participate. I don't claim to be doing anything "groundbreaking" per se, but it does address claims that have been floating around here none the less.

Kick ass.


Yer gonna end up starting a GLP astronomy club.


I love looking to the heavens.

I hope so, glad you enjoyed it. Clouds are starting to roll in, I'm going to go ahead and call it a night.

Here's the recording showing Venus through the main scope, then with the camcorder to show how its bokeh appearance in an out-of-focus camcorder does not actually tell you anything about Venus' true appearance, then again in the main scope before switching over to the widefield scope where Venus was over-exposed to show how it's not actually a "plasma light ship," but just looks like a big ball of light when you over-expose it, the size of which depends on the extent of over-exposure, then back to the main scope again to show the true shape with proper exposure, then upping that to over-exposure to prove that indeed the "plasma light ship" pictures are just over-exposed Venus, then finally after it set in the main scope and faded I switched back to the widefield scope ridding piggyback on top of the main scope where you saw it setting over the roof line. Somewhere around 40 minutes into the recording you can start to see Saturn at the equivalent of about 200 magnification, then about 15 minutes later you can see Saturn at the equivalent of about 400 magnification.

I haven't had the opportunity to telescope the sky and so (for me) it is not the same old shit.

Why Venus is so bright these days if it is not a full Venus?
 Quoting: NewAgeMan


Nobody can still answer that.
To live is to believe in the power of dreams.
To dream is to believe in the power of love.
To love is to believe in yourself.

I already answered it, I even gave the formula for it.

Venus is brightest when it is a crescent because that is when it is closest to us, and that has a bigger effect than phase angle until it is nearly about to reach inferior conjunction.

Try reading the thread before claiming nobody answered a question.

Well, I did. You may not like the answer, but that's what it is. You claimed no one answered the question. I did.

The PHAs have the closest orbits to Earth's, coming within five million miles (about eight million kilometers), and they are big enough to survive passing through Earth's atmosphere and cause damage on a regional, or greater, scale. The new results come from the asteroid-hunting portion of the WISE mission, called NEOWISE. The project sampled 107 PHAs to make predictions about the entire population as a whole. Findings indicate there are roughly 4,700 PHAs, plus or minus 1,500, with diameters larger than 330 feet (about 100 meters). So far, an estimated 20 to 30 percent of these objects have been found.
