  1. I had a pretty cool dream last nite.

    I was the head of security for some corporation and was on a nice private ship far away from any land. The CEO and board members were having a meeting inside. Later on, I stepped outside to get some fresh air and looked up. There were so many stars and the winter Milky Way was stretching across the sky. The Orion Nebula even appeared in it's pink color. It was so beautiful! and not a single light dome in sight  :awed:

    Damn, I want that dream to come back

      @Stone Cold Steve Tuna, that does sound nightmarish!  :sealed:

      @Lucky Bolt, It was definitely vivid! The suit I was wearing, the people in the board meeting, the ship, and the night sky all felt so real, especially considering I've never seen a pristine night sky before, nor have I ever been a security guard/cop. :ooh:

      @Tacodidra, ha ha. Maybe so. Perhaps it's showing me what I'm missing. I need to see a pristine sky  :ooh:

  2. Good morning ponyville!!

    Hope you all are doing well!,:D

    Got a busy day ahead..but it’s all good;)

  3. Hello, and good afternoon everypony!:mlp_grin:

    I got tonsillitis again. Welp. It’s particularly aggravating, the timing of it all, because now I can’t eat any of my little Easter trinkets without regurgitating, so that’s fun.

    Oh well, better I get it now than in the school term, I suppose.:mlp_rarity:

      @J.T., If you do want to see the Milky Way, pretty much anywhere yellow or darker should work. I'd go to a place that is at least yellow-green/light green on the map.

  10. I remember a few weeks ago that I had to explain to someone that the technology that we use for wireless networks and AM/FM radio is actually just different lengths of light. They for some reason didn't think radio waves were light. :bedeyes:

      Yep, loooooooong wavelengths. 

      Even that dark closet in the house is glowing with photons, Infrared.

      I'm glowing quite brightly in infrared right now. Just ate dinner.  :laugh:

  12. Does anypony have any member title name ideas/suggestions for me? I’m thinking about becoming a Subscriber...but have been racking my brain for the past 2 hours or so trying to figure out a good member title name that’d work for me...any thoughts? :laugh:

  14. Sorry if I haven't been able to respond or interact much lately. I've been having a rough few days and my mood has been all over the place. Apparently my liver isn't functioning properly or something, so now I'm paranoid as all hell.

      @Tacodidra, I find the UV images to be quite fascinating. We cannot see those dark markers on the flowers, without a UV sensitive camera. I wonder if it's some sort of signaling for bees? They can see UV light.  :ooh:

      On the infrared side, nearly all vegetation on the planet strongly reflects Near IR light. Why? Some sort of mechanism to reflect excessive heat from sunlight? :ooh:

      Guess I should find a book on this subject  :twismile:

  16. Good afternoon everypony!:grin:

    Just went to the dentist for a semi-regular checkup, everything is up to code thankfully. I bestowed a Frozen sticker upon myself for being such a good girl, which is pretty great, though I’m not allowed to eat for an hour for some reason, which is not as enjoyable, particularly with the surplus of confectionary treats currently residing in the fridge.:mlp_rarity:

      The old dentist I use to go to as a kid had an ice cream shop next door. You could get your cavities filled, then get new ones right after!  :laugh:

  17. Enjoy a Moon crater pic. The crater's really pop out with a green filter on the eyepiece!  :fluttershy:

    With that said, I must call it a night. Got off work late, and I'm too exhausted to look at Jupiter. Next time. Good night, everypony!  :orly:

      @Rikifive, It's a habit.

      Normally, one wouldn't find it necessary to label ordinary photographs, but when imaging the same subject outside the visible spectrum, it's needed to avoid confusion  :adorkable:

  18. Well, I have successfully replaced the IAC valve in my truck...therefore it runs again! :mlp_yeehaa: Just one problem...the throttle body gasket crumbled to pieces when I touched it...:wacko: So I’ll have to replace that next. But so far, so good. Only other things left to replace/fix are, *inhales*, the tie rods, rear brakes, brake line, suspension/shocks, and then, touch up the chipping paint spots and I’m good to go. :-D 

    Any of y’all curious as to how loud that exhaust is? Well...here’s a short vid from today after I put the new IAC valve in...

      Nice work on the truck!  :fluttershy:

      On the exhaust, just toss the old exhaust pipe and run open headers. (I'm kidding)  :laugh:

      Gosh, I haven't logged on one of the astronomy forums in probably a year. Just not really active there anymore or the gun forums I use to hang around in the mid 2000's :huh:

  23. The thing that scares me the most is the thought of getting older. I don't like that thought. I kind of wish time would just free but that is not how things work. It just makes me really anxious.

      I hear ya. I've been thinking about life and getting older a bit lately.

      Especially since my 20's will be gone in a few months and start another decade: 30. Where has the time gone?  :sealed:
