Note for 4/14/11

Well, I was hoping to have some shots from my telescope camera for you by now. Unfortunately there hasn't been a clear night yet since I got it. I have it all set up and ready to go though. Tonight looks like it might be clear enough, so I might give it a shot.

Also, tonight I am giving my presentation at the Harford County Astronomical Society on Life in the Universe. I am a bit excited, but unsure of exactly how large a crowd this will be. This will probably be the largest single crowd I have addressed in awhile where I am the focus. It should go well, and hopefully someone will either record it or take pictures that will be put online.

I don't have a lot of time for a major update today since I have to get ready. Kind of unfortunate, I also miss out on playing Frisbee and kickball with some friends. But I have been thinking of other idea's for future posts. There are no shortage of great astronomy topic to covered, but this weekend I might think about doing something more related to the Life in the Universe presentation. Probably looking at some extreme lifeforms (known as extremophiles).

So that's it for today. A more personal touch and not a lot of sciency info. Hope everyone has a good Thursday night!

EDIT: I'm back now, unfortunately by the time I got up to present I totally forgot about recording it. Oh well, I'll fill in on it later. Right now my internet is down, so not going to say much, its a pain to update from my phone. I think I am going to try to take some pictures of tis beautiful full moon though.
