Researchers and innovators around the globe are looking at potential solutions that take CO2 emissions and turn them into valuable products - products like new and sustainable building materials; low-emission transportation fuels; and alternative chemical products that can be used to make everything from clothing and running shoes, to safer, stronger automobiles and breakthrough medicines. And that’s only the beginning.
Here in Kirkland WA, we've got a great observing location on the ridge to the east of the city with a clear view of the horizon, so we should be able to get some decent pictures!
Remember, the moon (like the sun) rises in the east. As it is full, it should rise directly east - but just keep the sun to your back (as it will be setting) and you'll be fine.
The best shots are always close to the horizon - check out the Ponzo Illusion to find out why. Here in the PDT timezone, the moon will rise with about 75% of its disc already eclipsed, and be fully eclipsed about 15 minutes later, so horizon shots could be rather spectacular - we'll still have about 30 minutes of daylight/twilight at that point.

Sicker still is the complete lack of interest in gun control in this country - I mean, 294 mass shootings in 274 days this year so far. Clearly, no one fucking cares. Having your guns is more important than hundreds of innocent people being murdered every year <smmfh>
A nice surprise today, was not aware I was getting this - and d'awww the part description is "H2G2 welcome kit" :) Thanks for the nidge to update ;)
My #projectfi experience thus far has been... interesting. There are some definite QoS enhancements needed, like when you are in a low-ish (2-3 bar) WiFi zone the call should just go over cell rather than WiFi, little things like that. Works great if you are in a call, sucks if you have an app actively pulling data - Maps is my biggest bugbear...
But that said, my more recent voice calls have been problem-free, and some have had exceptional clarity, even with a low-signal WiFi network. So there's that.
I'm currently running LVY48F, unrooted stock (I know, I know) so I can catch the official rollout of #marshmallow - icymi I geek hard on things like that...
