      Yes they are very adorable! This is my least fav one tho. Feels a lil lengthy, but I still love it!

  2. Looks like the rain is gone for a couple days. I may head to my property for a few days and get some stuff done.

    Definitely do not like staying at home all day.  :yeahno:

      I hear you. It's been nice finding lot's of things to make up for it, though...for now. We can only go so long. :sealed:

      Welp, I've found nothing to do at home. Nothing at all, apart from sit at my laptop 24/7. I swear I'm gonna lose my eyes at this rate.

      As a freelancer, nerd and trapped woman in a communist country I would say that I am somewhat used to it. on the other hand yes, it sucks :huh:

  3. How are things going for ya, Taco?

      I'm fine, thanks! :kindness: Admittedly there's not much going on at the moment, but I guess things could be worse too! :coco:

      I hope you've been fine too! :rarity: *hugs*

      That's good to hear. :rarity: You too! :kindness:

  4. Good morning, ponies!

    It's rare for me to be online in the morning hours. I'm off work for a while since my "essential" status was rescinded.

  5. Happy Birthday, @Cash In! Hope there's plenty of Sunset Shimmer cake and ice cream!  :kirin:

  6. One of my old hobbies.  :Daydreaming:

    With the extra time I have now, might find some batteries and dust these off.

      That'll be great. The only time I've seen a Geiger counter was in school, and even then we weren't allowed to touch it ourselves. :worry:

    3. Radium Phosphor

      Radium Phosphor

      The Geiger tubes are fairly fragile, so maybe that's why your teacher didn't let yall handle it. :huh:

    4. Princess of Hearts ❤️❤️

      Princess of Hearts ❤️❤️

      Probably. To be fair teenagers are really irresponsible, so it wouldn't have been the best idea to let us use it. 

  7. I think I might start posting some updates on the progress I've made at my other property. (With pics of course.) 

    1. Cash In

      Cool. I'm looking forward to seeing them.

      Great pictures! Are these from your new place?

      These are at my house. It will probably be later this year before I can even think about moving. Corona is messing up my  plans  :mellow:

    4. Twilight Luna

      Twilight Luna

      That’s a pretty flower. Hopefully you’ll get to move there soon. :kindness:

  11. A radioluminescent phosphor should keep Corona away, tho it's definitely not safe to hug this pony without a lead lined suit  :P

      @Ultraviolet Phosphor At my dad's job, people were divided into the Blue Team and the White Team. Each week, one team comes in while the other team stays home. My dad is on the Blue Team, meaning he technically could come in this week, but he's staying home anyway.

      Not sure how my bedroom-converted home office would compare. I can still keep in touch because my cell phone is hooked to my office phone.

    4. Radium Phosphor

      Most of my work is hands on, so working from home would be unproductive. Even if it wasn't, I'm limited by satellite internet. Video chats with that kinda latency would not be fun. 

  13. @Super Splashee: Did Sonic forget to collect the Corona Stones?  :unsure:

      Also, Sonic CD is awesome, just sayin' :D

  19. I think I saw these satellites just after twilight yesterday. There was a string of them passing above Venus.  :huh:

  20. Have you done any stargazing with Matt lately?  :ooh:

      Wait...on the ground? :wacko:

    3. Radium Phosphor

      Radium Phosphor

      I saw it by placing my hand in front of my shirt, which is white. The ground here is mostly grass, which is probably too dark to notice any shadows. It's not much, but it's still cool to see it  :kirin: 

    4. Lucky Bolt

      Lucky Bolt

      That's so cool! I didn't even think that was possible. Well I just realized how NOT dark the skies around here are. :o Still fun to go out and stargaze though, even if it's just a little bit of stars I'm able to see. It's so relaxing. :catface:

  21. It was quite hot today, but this was definitely worth it. My 16" telescope performed very well in UV, as predicted. The UV images of Venus are much sharper than those from the Celestron C8. :yay: 

    If anypony is interested, I will add a post comparing the images with an explanation of why there's a difference. It'll be in the nonpony artwork thread.

    Enjoy!  :BrightMacContent:

      @DivineBlur1000, I almost had a good pic of the thin crescent moon yesterday evening. I was walking to the field down the road and saw it. By the time I walked back to grab my camera, it had already set below the trees. Next time  :P 

      @Princess of Hearts ❤️❤️, Cloud details on Venus are only visible in the UV spectrum. Otherwise, the planet appears plain white. Like this:

      Ven_C8_NIR_3-19-2020.jpg

    3. Princess of Hearts ❤️❤️

      Princess of Hearts ❤️❤️

      Is that visibility only in UV due to the composition of Venus’s clouds and atmosphere?

    4. Radium Phosphor

      Radium Phosphor

      @Princess of Hearts ❤️❤️: Yep. The UV absorber could be sufuric acid in the clouds.

  22. Social distancing: Not a problem here!  :fluttershy:

    Some pics of my rural property:

    • First two Images shot w/ Schott RG1000 Near IR filter
    • Last image with Hoya U340 Ultraviolet filter

    Hope everypony is doing well!  :BrightMacContent:

      Its been a while since I took pictures of the wild. Yours are really good!:pinkie:

  23. It's late and I don't have to go to bed on time. Feels kinda weird not having to go in to work tomorrow.  :huh:

    I do have a lot of stuff to do at the other place, so I probably won't be on much this week. Have a good night and I'll see ya next time. :grin:
