Infernal #2b [CCD edition]: Sealth’s Martian Adventure

Thursday, 5 August 2010

Part of the "Playing with a Borrowed D40" series.

Part of the "Wherever there’s smoke, you can’t see a bloody thing" mini-series.

Compare against the Kodachrome view shot moments before, when it was still visible to the naked eye.

With the naked eye, the sun by this point was literally invisible due to particulates blocking sunlight wavelengths in the visible spectrum. This image is literally of a near-infrared sun, the bottom here cut-off by the obscured Olympic Range. Sure, a real Martian sunset makes a blue orb. Creative licence, okay?

One of the Last

Edited Messenger image – one of the last that will be returned before its crash into Mercury. Messenger’s orbit around Mercury has been as low as a few hundred meters above the surface.

Original caption:
Date acquired: April 29, 2015
Image Mission Elapsed Time (MET): 72595737
Image ID: 8414772
Instrument: Narrow Angle Camera (NAC) of the Mercury Dual Imaging System (MDIS)
Center Latitude: 69.46°
Center Longitude: 229.49° E
Resolution: 1.7 meters/pixel
Scale: The largest crater in this image has a diameter of 330 meters (0.2 miles)

Of Interest: This image, acquired yesterday, is one of MESSENGER’s last. Today, the spacecraft will complete its highly successful orbital mission and impact the surface of Mercury. View this image for details of MESSENGER’s impact location. Impact is expected at 19:26:02 UTC (3:26:02 pm EDT) but will occur out of sight and communication with the Earth. The MESSENGER team will try to establish communications with the spacecraft when its orbit would allow it to be visible from Earth. The inability to establish communications between MESSENGER and the scheduled Earth-based tracking antenna will provide the first confirmation that the spacecraft has impacted the surface. After about 30 minutes following the predicted Mercury impact time, the team plans to announce whether MESSENGER’s orbital mission has come to an end.

The MESSENGER spacecraft is the first ever to orbit the planet Mercury, and the spacecraft’s seven scientific instruments and radio science investigation are unraveling the history and evolution of the Solar System’s innermost planet. In the mission’s more than four years of orbital operations, MESSENGER has acquired over 270,000 images and extensive other data sets. View highlights of the mission in this image highlights collection. MESSENGER’s highly successful orbital mission is about to come to an end, as the spacecraft runs out of propellant and the force of solar gravity causes it to impact the surface of Mercury today, April 30, 2015.

I was surprised one day by an unusual screaming of some bird close to the house, andgoing out I found that one of these hawks had just caught an unfortunate flicker^ \yhich- probably feared no assault from a bird no larger than itself.

When I released it it flew to a tree near by, andfor some time showed its astonishment and joy by loud cries. As the pigeon hawk is found in summer, it doubtless breeds in the Territory. In August,1855, I shot one of a small family of young which had but lately left the nest. They probablymigrate southward in winter, as I found them abundant in California in October andNovember.—C. About the 1st of August this bird becomes very abundant in the vicinity of Fort Steilacoom,W. T. During the summer and autumn of 1856 I obtained a number of specimens in differentstages of phunage.

Happy Travelers Go to Washington, D.C.

Image by Old Shoe Woman
On Sunday, May 1, 2011; the Happy Travelers enjoyed breakfast at the Hampton Inn in Chantilly, VA. Our bus driver took us to Arlington National Cemetery where we met our guide. We boarded the Tourmobile for a trip through the cemetery with stops at Kennedy’s grave and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Before leaving the cemetery, we toured the Women in Military Museum.

Next our bus took us to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. There we ate lunch at the Atrium Cafe. We saw the Hope Diamond, an Insect Zoo, and shopped in the gift shops.

Finally our bus drove us to the Holiday Inn in Sterling, VA where we enjoyed a delicious buffet with turkey, fish, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad, and Tiramisu. While we ate, we were enjoyed by the band, Just Friends. After the meal, several people enjoyed getting up on the dance floor and entertaining everyone else.

Again we enjoyed our last night at the Hampton Inn in Chantilly, VA.

2009 08 01 – 8087 – Washington DC – 930 Club – Xavier Rudd
washington bands
Image by thisisbossi
Xavier Rudd was phenomenal: the best concert I’ve been to at the 9:30 Club, and very likely in the running (and perhaps winner) of the best concert I’ve ever been to… ever.

I never heard of Xavier Rudd until about a month before the concert, when my friend Lindsey sent me a link to a Youtube video & asked if I wanted to go. The sound of the didgeridoos w/ a rock ensemble instantly grabbed my attention, so I readily said "yes".

Xavier is a relaxed guy… he’s so peaceful, and his charisma grabs at the audience — drawing them right into every song. His talent is tough to equate: he swapped instruments every song, and I was impressed with how — in the same song: he could play a guitar, play percussion, sing vocals, and blow into the didge. Bravo.

The two others on stage — one on drums and one on bass — both had distinct personalities; and both frequently emerging from their background positions (if ever it could be said they were much more background than Xavier was). It’s rare to see bassists stay in the spotlight: but this bassist was on center stage the whole show.

Even the stagehand joined on banjo at one point, and dagnabit he was good… if only they put some more light on him & gave him a little more airtime. It’s not often a stagehand has his own stagehand.

When I saw the Disco Biscuits back on 4/20: the show was stellar, but the crowd was disappointing. Granted, I’m straight edge… so I don’t smoke nor drink… so yeah, I was well aware that I was seeing a pot band on April 20th. Nonetheless, the crowd was downright obnoxious and ruined what could’ve otherwise been a great show. Here with Xavier Rudd, however: the crowd was by and large coherent and able to leap about, scream, and throw up their arms without spilling their drinks all over the place or falling into everyone around them.

One exception was during the last two songs, when in separate events the girl behind me dropped her beer on me… and then the girls in front of me rushed the stage — causing every other woman in the front to also rush; and women further back to make an attempt. One girl on stage may or may not have been aware that she was falling out of her dress in front of everyone. The woman that ended up in front of me — almost separating me from Lindsey & successfully separating a nearby couple — got to experience my "OMG I’M A DRUNK FANBOY LOLZ" personality, which is amazing at getting annoying people away from me. She got out of there in about a minute.

I’ve gone from having never heard of Xavier Rudd to joining every social networking outlet he has… now I’m holding my breath for when he returns, and I have a newfound desire to pick up a didgeridoo during my trek to Oceania this winter.
