moderated Time to enjoy astronomy and nature


 

To all of our friends,

 

As events and activities are cancelled and stressful news abounds, you may wish to consider indulging yourself in activities that you enjoy – hikes in the woods, preparing your garden beds for Spring, bird watching, astronomy, etc. Get up off the couch and enjoy a night under the stars and finally process those images that you have been capturing. Be sure to share your observing experiences and images with our group.

 

Be kind to one another and those that you love. Be safe.

 

Clear Skies,

Thanks for the timely reminder of what’s important. Astronomy is one of my “ Shelters from the Storm”. Imaging right now

With the normal places we take our 18 month old closed and activities cancelled, I worked all day in the yard while he played in the dirt for the first time. He had a great time while I, who was clearing a 100x20' patch of english ivy, aka "green bullshit", was a different story. All for the good, however, as it's in preparation for taking down a dying tree that'll finally allow me to image from my back yard.

Hi Marj
  Will AP online store continue shipping stuff? I was planning to put in a small order of accessories next week.

Thanks Marj Good advice.

Are you and Roland still in Hawaii ?

They were showing the immigration lines in Chicago this morning on the news. The wait is several hours long. Fortunately, when you come home you will not have to go through immigration, but the airport will likely be a circus. On the upside, I expect that after the initial rush of people trying to get into the country from the EU, things will slow down a lot. Your biggest risk will be that they cancel your flight due to lack of travelers. I suppose if you are going to get stuck somewhere I can't think of a better place than Hale Lalani Hoku.

I count myself very lucky. I was scheduled to fly home from Germany on Saturday, but decided on Wednesday to fly home a day early. Luckily I did this a few hours before they announced the travel ban, and I got home OK with surprisingly little problems. I am currently in self-quarantine for 2 weeks.
 
Daleen is planning to ship my upgraded 180 EDT on Monday. If the weather cooperates I hope to spend some time outside with my scope during my quarantine.

Love this advice! I went for a walk through the hardwood forrest on my Farm this morning at dawn. It was beautiful especially with all the tweedle birds singing. The morel mushrooms should be coming up soon (yum!). And, hopefully, we will get some clear skies soon (fingers crossed).
I learned the hard way a long time ago that the most important thing in life is not your wealth. It is, without question, your friends and family. Hang onto them tightly.

All the Best to all my Astro- Friends! You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Cytan,

 

Yes, there are no known cases in our area and with schools closed and events cancelled, local communities and the state are taking steps to reduce the risk and spread.

Mike,

 

We leave on Monday and fly direct to Chicago from Maui. So far, the flight is on schedule and there are empty seats all around us. I wish we could stay longer, but Roland has scopes and mounts to produce along with our staff. We arrive at Ohare at 5am when the terminals will be empty.

 

You were wise to leave Europe early. I have seen the news reports about delays and confusion at airports.

 

Enjoy your time with your 180!

 

Clear Skies,

Little evening with my club last night and I hope not last after many very cloudy nights.The 92 Stowaway, installed on an Azgti and an aluminum tripod did its best, in a sky with its light pollution to the north (Bordeaux).Its optical qualities have given much pleasure to the usual observers and passages. M42 and around, the pleiades and M81 / M82 among others were of the party.
Thank you Majr for your good advice, the events of the moment should not prevent us from the good air of our starry nights.
What doesn't keep us apart brings us closer.

Marj, that is an uplifting, kind and insightful post.  We all need to take care of our mental health as it is directly tied to our wellness and our immune system (stress and cortisol level rise reduces immune response) That much we do know.  I love astronomy for the peacefulness of observing and the quiet of the night.  Morels aren’t bad either.  Be well my fellow AP groupies.   Tom Fischer, Indy

Hi Marj,
   Please stay safe. I watched Mayor Lightfoot taking the Feds to the woodshed this morning on WGN. O'Hare is an utter mess, at least for International arrivals. Hopefully, domestic is ok especially since you're arriving early in the morning.

We're flying back tomorrow. I don't anticipate any problems. Ohare is a breeze, get off the plane, head for the bus and we are on the way home. There are no lines coming out of Ohare, it's a straight shot to the Rockford bus.

Please be careful and don't touch anything. Carry hand sanitizer and stay away from people! You all riding the bus worries me. Take care and safe travels!

We're flying back tomorrow. I don't anticipate any problems. Ohare is a breeze, get off the plane, head for the bus and we are on the way home. There are no lines coming out of Ohare, it's a straight shot to the Rockford bus.

Thanks Marj Good advice.

Are you and Roland still in Hawaii ?

They were showing the immigration lines in Chicago this morning on the news. The wait is several hours long. Fortunately, when you come home you will not have to go through immigration, but the airport will likely be a circus. On the upside, I expect that after the initial rush of people trying to get into the country from the EU, things will slow down a lot. Your biggest risk will be that they cancel your flight due to lack of travelers. I suppose if you are going to get stuck somewhere I can't think of a better place than Hale Lalani Hoku.

I count myself very lucky. I was scheduled to fly home from Germany on Saturday, but decided on Wednesday to fly home a day early. Luckily I did this a few hours before they announced the travel ban, and I got home OK with surprisingly little problems. I am currently in self-quarantine for 2 weeks.
 
Daleen is planning to ship my upgraded 180 EDT on Monday. If the weather cooperates I hope to spend some time outside with my scope during my quarantine.

Please be careful and don't touch anything. Carry hand sanitizer and stay away from people! You all riding the bus worries me. Take care and safe travels!


Thanks,

This cavalier attitude is what will kill many people, and shows your astounding lack of understanding of epidemiology.  Avoiding others is paramount right now.
