Hi All,

 

We will have a special broadcast tomorrow on Nightskiesnetwork.com from the Mauna Lani Hotel on the Big Island starting about 8:45pm HST.  It will be right after a talk given by Kip Thorne who won the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on gravitational wave detection.  If we are lucky, Dr. Thorne may join us for a bit, but I can’t promise anything.  Here is a link to info about the talk and live view show.

Our channel is White Mountain Skies.  Hope you can join us.

Good idea.  I’ll contact Joe.  I think he has means to do it.

 

I just found out that Dr. Thorne’s talk will be streamed live on Keck’s FB Page.

Hi All,

 

Just want to apologize to all those who tried to tune in to  our broadcast last night.  We had some technical difficulties that prevented us from broadcasting any images.  We did have some live images for the people who attended the talk.  Dr. Thorne did spend a few minutes with us and observed our view of Orion.  He had a number of other commitments, but was very gracious in trying to talk with everyone.  His talk was great and mainly focused on his involvement with the movie “Interstellar”.  You can see it on the Keck Observatory FB Page.  He was really impressed with the near live view system and process.  We plan on a broadcast for this Monday night depending on weather.  I’ll post something here on Monday morning once I get the latest weather report.

 

Thanks to all those who tried to join us.  I did broadcast a bit to let viewers know of the problem.  Hope we have better luck on Monday.

 

Don

I will be doing a nightskiesnetwork.com broadcast tonight from Vocanoes National Park here on the Big Island.  Dean Regas, host of PBS Star Gazers is having a Kilauea Star Party and graciously allowed us to be part of it with our live view outreach show.  Our channel is White Mountain Skies and we will start about 7:00pm HST.  

 

Also, I will attempt to broadcast tomorrow night’s lunar eclipse from my home site.  If the weather permits, that should start about 1:00am HST early Wednesday morning.
