From my front yard, coordinates 45.5229° N, 122.9898° W And I'm not sure, but did I catch a solar prominence, top right-ish? There's a little reddish thing about about "1 o'clock". It got very dim, and a few degrees cooler. Standing under the shade of the maple tree in my yard felt like night, although… Continue reading Eclipse 2017
So... Long time, no see! Between bad weather (being snowed in with no power for 2 days in January) and just general life stuff, the blog has once again taken a back seat to... well, everything. In an effort to rectify that (at least to a small extent) I thought I'd post a snippet of… Continue reading Flotsam

Exercise more?… Continue reading 2016, We’re Counting on You
I can't believe it's been a whole month since I posted anything. I threw in the towel on NaNoWriMo again. I've been sick for a week and it sort of took the wind out of my sails. I'm about 10,000 words into a new thing, my first attempt at a YA novel. But fear not,… Continue reading November Collection
UPDATE: March 1, 2015 - turns out it was NOT the ISS. We checked and it was on the other side of the world at the time the pics were taken (4:39PM PST). Plus it's in the wrong location, and moving in the wrong direction. Best guess now is a satellite. No idea what… Continue reading A Visitor to the Moon
