The day study took place during July-August A detailed report plus many photos and charts are here. The method reliably detects the stratospheric aerosol layer and dust layers in the troposphere so long as the zenith sky is cloud free.

The method also detected the altitude of the ozone layer over the Mauna Loa Observatory in June This method also detects meteoric smoke from 70 to km when conditions are good.

Celebrating the Classic Circuits of Forrest M. Mims III
New Book. Included are two columns on twilight photometry. The first printing sold out quickly. UAVs Drones. Check out my MAKE columns on doing science with drones and concerns about over-regulating an important new science tool. Many additional measurements were added over the years. VR Documentary. Turing my head shifted the view to where I was looking. It was if I was standing at MLO again and looking around.
Rolex has asked Prof. This year's awards were presented at the Dolby Theatre. Afterwards, the closing banquet was held on the stage under a sea of lights and a giant Rolex logo.
Forrest Mims, Rolex Laureate, 1993
There have now been Rolex Awards from 33, applications. The program has expanded from 5 awards every 3 years as when I received a Rolex Award in to 10 awards every 2 years.
Rolex has updated the biographies of its award laureates. They have even included the incident in which I lost a major column assignment at Scientific American magazine after the editor learned I reject Darwinian evolution and abortion.
That incident occurred a few years before I applied for a Rolex Award, and it received international publicity. I was concerned it would disqualify me, but that's not the Rolex way. It also led directly to Solar Light's Microtops II, around a thousand of which are now around the world measuring the ozone layer, the water vapor layer and atmospheric haze.
This was the 25th year I have calibrated atmospheric instruments at MLO. New microwave systems at MLO caused major noise problems at times, usually beginning around am.
This also caused major problems for the Navy Research Lab's long-term microwave study of middle atmosphere ozone and water vapor.
The greatest electronics book ever written?
My year total water vapor chart shows a large increase during the El Nino but none during the ongoing El Nino The rain arrrived during late summer. Mauna Loa Observatory book see below has received an award.

The cover photo shows a full sky view made by photographing an aluminized glass sphere. Many updates and revisions have been addded to this site with more to come. People still ask about the Scientific American affair, which jump-started my science career. Some skeptics and atheists are unhappy about this matter.

I wrote the operator's manual. More photos of the workbench are at www. The Smithsonian exhibit is summarized here. It has also been calibrated Langley method each year at the Mauna Loa Observatory. A backup unit was also calibrated at MLO in June The results show that this simple instrument is highly stable. A scientific paper will be written about the design of the instrument and its results.

Thus, the face of the eclipsed moon is illuminated by all the sunrises and sunsets occurring at the moment each exposure was made. See www. Pentax Optio 33WR with 2 sec exposures at 2 min intervals.
