Using stars for reference and calibration, Global Education needs and opportunities

Mitchell, Thanks for your work on RGB and chromacity of stars. I was looking at these two live videos on YouTube for Maunakea,Hawaii live all sky camera and its associated, and fairly nicely synchronized, star chart Live All Sky: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPWz3mDvAuY Star Chart: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1xkCMa0uQE I think these would make good teaching aides for astronomy groups world-wide.

Improving the quality of online live video streams, super resolution methods for stars

Ben, I am still trying to track all online live videos, particularly those that can be used for education. This one, at the bottom of the description has a link to a Google app to set the clock.  I want to have time when you slide the slider, not hours from “now” which changes constantly.

Large computers hosting associated global communities of global projects

Bill, For the Internet Foundation, I am reviewing the role of large computers and computer arrays.  What started me on this slightly ahead of schedule was the ExaScale group at E4S-Project.github.io | GitHub website for E4S Project and then today looking at the Dark Energy Survey that leads back to NCSA. My outline for a

Visiting NSF NOIRLab for the first time – looking for pixels from telescopes

Hello, For the Internet Foundation, I am looking at many data and model sharing efforts on the Internet. To judge difficulty of use, gather notes on practices, policies, methods, content, groups, and links between efforts.  I am posting this note also to /?p=1230 so more people can see it. If you want me to change

Please correct an error on Sciencing.com, Physics of Plasma Globes

I happened on a nicely done study of the plasma ball.  The filaments are re-created every cycle.  They start as spherically symmetric (probably depending on the roughness of the sphere they use) and then extend outward at fast but finite speed. Each cycle, the tendrils (that is the most common name so far) follow the

Note to Astronomical League

https://www.astroleague.org/ I found a few YouTube live all sky cameras. They are for weather, weather research, astronomical viewing planning, a tiny bit of actual teaching of human astronomical methods, some moon and sun projects, some cosmic ray and lightning, some comet, some other things. I just wondered if your members and groups are doing this,

Cosmic ray shadow of the sun and moon, LIGO Array moon sun tracking

I was just going to say thanks for doing these. But: Have you heard of anyone trying to pick up the sun or moon presence in other networks? Was getting ready to point the older LIGO array of three detectors in the direction of the moon and sun to see if it could pick up “moon”

Comments on UCAR community registration and purpose, global climate change

I was looking at https://climatedataguide.ucar.edu/climate-data/gpcp-daily-global-precipitation-climatology-project where it says “Become a Registered User”. Courteous, inviting. But click and it says, “Access denied, The page you requested requires that you login.” So it seems to login you have to register, and to register you have to be able to log in.

Comment on Mars Helicopter Snaps color image – Metric, Documenting, Teaching, Sharing

​You are very thoughtful. Yes, I agree about the usual human practices and methods. Every single one of the tens of thousands of groups I studied in detail on the Internet ended up failing or limiting themselves because of the greed of a few people, or policies that benefited only their group. It is particularly
