To See Comet NEOWISE (i.e., C/2020 F3) In New Hampshire — Turn OFF Your Car Lights.

by Anura Guruge



We lucked out Friday.

We did go out again Saturday & Sunday. Same place … Ridge Road, in New Durham, off Prospect Mountain Road (about 2-miles from our house).

Yesterday there were about 4 cars.

Today there was about 6 — & some were parked, on the side of the road, with their headlights on!

That is NOT going to help.

There was cloud cover both nights, so NEOWISE was NOT visible.

Even if it was, having car lights on will NOT help. NEOWISE is NOT bright.

YOU NEED NIGHT VISION — i.e., your eyes to get accustomed to the dark. Just like boating at night. Night vision.

So, TURN OFF your car LIGHTS (once you have parked).

This was a Public Service Message.

What Am I Thinking: Are The Cyber Attacks In Australia, A Dress Rehearsal By China, For The U.S. Pre-Election?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE & study. From ‘Google News’. Google as I have shown …


Not sure how many of you have been following this, i.e., MASSIVE cyber attacks in Australia that the Australian GOVERNMENT believes is from China, STATE-SPONSORED at that.

OK?

Scary?

I thought last week’s Twitter hack was related. It still could prove to be so. They are clever enough to provide some convenient red herrings to throw us off course.

So, what I am THINKING.

Is this just a DRESS REHEARSAL?

Real target is the U.S., pre-election.

Biden, just yesterday, said that he has had security briefings that intimate that China & Russia plan to interfere with the election. See below.

This worries I.

I think the Chinese have had it up to their eye-teeth with the US.

They have the resources. This could get UGLY with all of us as helpless pawns.

Have YOU thought about this?

Should you?

New ‘Garmin Fenix 6 Solar’ Side-by-Side With ‘Fenix 6 Pro’, Both Titanium (One Black, Other Silver).

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.



The Black Titanium Solar
on its own.


Very similar. The BLACK is the SOLAR.

IF you look at image #1 (right at top) you will see a THIN ‘band’ between the glass face and the bezel. That is ONE of the solar collectors. That is SUPPOSED to be a 100% collector — i.e., collects all sunlight that falls on it.

FUNNY thing. In these picture the Silver Pro looks like it is BIGGER. It is not. It is fractionally smaller. In terms of watch diameters they are BOTH the same. The Solar is 0.4mm thicker. I noticed that right away. Display size is ALSO the SAME.

The titanium case WEIGHT is THE SAME, also.

I am ‘returning’ the Titanium band to my friends at ‘HeartRateMonitors USA‘. I hate metal bands on Garmin. Kind of feels stupid (& I wore a Rolex for 26-years).

So, that is the story so far. I will keep you posted.
