      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    Draconids Meteor Shower on October 8. The Draconids is a minor meteor shower producing only about 10 meteors per hour. It is produced by dust grains left behind by comet 21P Giacobini-Zinner, which was first discovered in 1900. The Draconids is an unusual shower in that the best viewing is in the early evening instead of early morning like most other showers. The shower runs annually from October 6-10 and peaks this year on the the night of the 8th. Unfortunately, the nearly full moon will block all but the brightest meteors this year. If you are extremely patient, you may be able to catch a few good ones. Best viewing will be in the early evening from a dark location far away from city lights. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Draco, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

    Full Moon on October 5. Moon will be directly opposite the Earth from the Sun and will be fully illuminated as seen from Earth. When the Moon is Full, it rises at dusk, is directly overhead at midnight, and sets at dawn. This phase occurs at 18:40 UTC. This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Hunters Moon because at this time of year the leaves are falling and the game is fat and ready to hunt. This moon has also been known as the Travel Moon and the Blood Moon. This moon is also known as the Harvest Moon. The Harvest Moon is the full moon that occurs closest to the September equinox each year.

    New Moon on September 20. The Moon will located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. When the Moon is New, it rises at dawn, is directly overhead at midday, and sets at dusk. This phase occurs at 05:30 UTC. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere.

    I'm guessing there were skid marks in their boxer shorts, too.

    Neptune at Opposition on September 5. The blue giant planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. Neptune will be directly overhead at midnight. It will be brighter than any other time of the year and will be visible all night long. This is the best time to view and photograph Neptune. Due to its extreme distance from Earth, it will only appear as a tiny blue dot in all but the most powerful telescopes.
  12. How do you know if the moon is waxing, or waning?

    Ask a stupid question, and you're sure to get a stupid answer.
  13. How do you know if the moon is waxing, or waning?

    Back when I was a middle school Science teacher, I taught a lesson on waxing and waning, and how to remember which was which. When the moon is waxing, the illuminated portion appears to be getting bigger. To remember this, there was a discussion about making candles. Each time a candle was dipped in the vat of hot wax, it grew larger. A brilliant student came up with a great way to remember that waning means that the illuminated portion of the moon appears to be getting smaller: 'Lil Wayne.

    New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse on August 21. The Moon will located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. When the Moon is New, it rises at dawn, is directly overhead at midday, and sets at dusk. This phase occurs at 18:30 UTC. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon completely blocks the Sun, revealing the Sun's beautiful outer atmosphere known as the corona. The total eclipse will be visible in parts of Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina before ending in the Atlantic Ocean. A partial eclipse will be visible in most of North America and parts of northern South America.
