Trip Reports / Re: Chasing the Aurora - Aaaron on a mission
« on: Today at 08:48:17 AM »
The KP index when I was at the Ranch was about a 1, and these were a little closer to 2.  I'll get to it in a bit, but a few hours later it hit a 4, and the difference is astounding.

Just to clarify one thing, the KP doesn't determine the strength of the aurora; that would be the Bz component. KP tells you how far south the auroral oval will be, so technically you could be at the perfect spot KP-wise and barely see anything due to the Bz component being high (negative numbers are better).

In your case, either the auroras were simply stronger further north, and they moved southward as the KP became stronger, or the Bz component went negative. So KP isn't the be all end all, rather one part of many in an exciting chase.

Dude, I don't care how you slice or dice it. $75 for a chicken bottom is Trump-level crazy.

ETS: Looks like yoohoo beat me to it :D

It would be nice if the search results were sortable, especially by date. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the current results list, and it's really difficult to find anything.

Look at 0:53 on the last video, there is a black guy with a kippah there.

Actually a good friend of mine. Interesting guy, used to fly Embraers for US Airways back in the day.

Why donít planes fly 700+ mph all the time?

Fuel costs offset any time gains.

Nice, looking forward to the rest.

Hoping the weather held for you.

i love how you would trust a random person here more than your doctor

I dare say the travelers here are more familiar with this subject than the vast majority of doctors, who would just Google it and read back the CDC site to you.

Up In The Air / Re: What Award Itinerary Did You Just Book/Hold?
« on: January 13, 2018, 09:00:20 PM »

Changed online to LYR-OSL-BRU-PRG. Got a ticketing error and was told to call in. Couple of agents claimed that BRU-PRG was phantom and so I had them put me on LYR-OSL-BRU-VIE-PRG.

Now this is what my itinerary looks like - this should be fun getting it sorted out.

Or maybe I should just learn to apparate.

And partners allow a SO on a OW? All within Europe, if that matters.

from the trip to Maine?

No, but close enough. From my trip to NH.

Someone remind me, what are the rules here on googling? Is it just reverse image that's out, or all googling?

The former.
