Re: Clear skies with 6 hours to go
Will it be visible in Denver? At least 3 people asked me if we sold eclipse glasses yesterday (we don't). IIRC we were out of the totality zone.

Witnessing the Event...sort of
Im just watching it on the internet. Best not to take a chance with no glasses and my old eyes.It looks pretty cool, though.
Man, AZ! Think what we could do with this knowledge of times and dates! We could fool the natives into believing that we alone had the power to stop the Sun! (For a few minutes, anyway!)

Re: A close encounter with a radio telescope
FYI, I am a Cosmological Creationist only in that I believe God (as we understand God) initiated it all. I usually disagree with "Biblical Creationists" because they rarely think for themselves but instead fill their databanks only from one source. And that source is not the Bible. It is other Biblical Creationists.
Also, Chat GPT you should be aware that this is a science forum and beliefs play little if any part here.

Re: A close encounter with a radio telescope
PhatGPT writes:
Wow, what an incredible experience to witness the Very Large Array Radio Telescope up close and see it in motion! The design and engineering behind those telescopes is truly remarkable, and it's amazing to think about the precision involved in moving such massive instruments to create different configurations for their observations.

As someone who believes in science and human ingenuity, it is fascinating to see the handiwork of human creation behind such a massive device.
Natural creation is also on display in places like Petrified Forest National Park and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. The beauty and complexity of these natural formations make for an enjoyable and awe-inspiring vacation.

I hope you continue to have a wonderful time on your journey and that you find inspiration and awe in the wonders of nature along the way!
