  1. Well, I'll be getting up, but the forecast is pants for me. In which case it'll be http://sunearthday.nasa.gov/2012/transit/webcast.php for me.
  2. Apart from the report on the mighty X class flare there's a nice pic over at SpaceWeather.com -- News and information about meteor showers, solar flares, auroras, and near-Earth asteroids scroll down to "Sunspot Conjunction" bw Mel

  4. See??! If only he'd consulted the horoscope before doing that, I'm sure that under the starsign of Procrastinator it would have said "this is not a good time to be trying to do complicated rebuilds"
  5. Oh yes, I'm with John. Perhaps even a question like "Are you thinking of doing some observing tonight?" may also be factored into the CCQ?
