It would be nice to see simultaneously such number of meteors ;D :)

Ma Toliman, what setup do you have for observing the sun?
I use classic white light filter.
What you have for solar observation?

The defining moment of this year's Lasen festival was having a child, with his parents, walk up to me (while I was the emcee) and ask if there was any chance of seeing an ISS pass. I told him I would check, and much to my amazement, discovered there was a pass starting in just 5 minutes! (They did not know this, AFAIK). In any case, it absolutely made this kid's day to ask and be immediately rewarded. We actually had two nice ISS passes this evening.
Nice! :)

Just got back from the Lasen Astronomy Festival and the Oregon Star Party. The story this year was heat and smoke.

I got to the Lassen festival just in time to get camp situated and prepare to set up my 'scope. But the group leader from our club recommended I not set up (due to smoke and poor sky conditions at the time) and instead me 'emcee'. I did this, and of course, the sky cleared. However, the spot I usually occupy wqs profitably used by some new astronomers from Sacramento, California, who would otherwise not had a place to set up. We had a good night, but attendance was way down due to the nearby Carr wildfire. (There were refugees from the fire staying in the park as well. 900 families lost their homes in that fire.)

The next day, a couple of us had a long talk with the park ranger who oversees the astronomy program. It turns out that the astronomy featival is one of the biggest activities the park offers, and is the most popular by a factor of 10 to 20(!) The park is now working on a 'serious' astronomy program where we can do non-public astronomy. It will also be held in a lower, but much quiieter part of the park.

I also did some public solar astronomy during the day. Despite there being 3 other solar 'scopes set up in the plaza, I was busy the whole time!

The night session started out smoky like the night before, but cleared up. this time, I did set up my 'scope, and had a good night, looking at planest and a few high-in-the-sky deep sky objects.

Gotta get back to work, will talk about the baking and smoking we got in Oregon in a later post!

When I went in November of 2016, I got the DVD (No Bluray was available at that time), a little light-up postcard, a fiber optic wand, an atokirina laser sculpture with lighted base, a copy of the program and what amounts to a 'plush toy'. I did not buy any articles of clothing, chiefly because of not being available in my size. I had the music CD for a long time at that point.

Many Cirque shows have come through Reno. This one didn't, and it doesn't look like it will.

Kaltxì ma Lynxcat,

I haven't been to the show yet, but will do so in October. I wanted to ask you how much the items did cost. Especially the DVD/Bluray and the book.

If they're sold at the show at all, hrh. If anyone else also has info on this, I'd appreciate any info I can get.

I really can't remember how much the items cost- I only got to buy one thing sadly. The hoodie cost about $50-60. I'm sorry. I wish I could help more.  :(

Very nice! No perseids for me this year (and not due to clouds) :(
:(
So where was a problem?
The location is not suited for astronomy.
:(
Not even for bright meteors?
well it's basically a small parking, it's not fun to stargaze in a parking.
Ah, it's true.



I observed the Sun today and there was surprisingly one sunspot. Nothing spectacular but better than nothing.
I also observed thin Moon crescent annd daytime Venus.
