Being the Son of God Made Flesh, I'd assume a little boulder would be no big deal. In Sunday school, I could never figure our why he didn't just go through it or vaporize it like superheroes on cartoons. What a showoff.
Or maybe you're just saying that he was really hungry and went looking for a chicken shawarma the size of his head?
What was the exact time of this discussion? Had I arrived yet? Patrick, you set your scope up quite a distance from mine. If you and Joe were having discussions that would impact the activities or policies of the CA, then you probably should have asked everyone to join in rather than whispering softly way over there by your pretty little EdgeHD! I hope you guys will be more inclusive when we next meet. Until then........
I had a great time at the Full Moon session last night. In spite of my flashlight idiot check sweep, I left my glasses there. Crabby with myself, I returned today after lunch and found them lying in the grass. I noticed that the dome with the 20" scope was open and pointed toward the Sun. I wandered over and found a bunch of JROTC kids checking out the solar scope. Their teacher told me to hang out and ask the astronomer, so I didn't need to be told twice. I stuck around, introduced myself, and Adler astronomer Mark was nice enough to give me a peek through their cool 90mm Coronado Ha scope. WOW! WOW! That was one of the coolest things I have ever seen. I immediately added one to my wish list.
I thanked him profusely. :-)
As for the scope, he said an 8" scope in the suburbs would have better luck doing research than this 20" under our Chicago light dome. Sad.
Still, finding my glasses and getting to see the Sun for the first time was well worth the severe traffic aggregation I suffered in transit.
