    Back to Venus for the moment
    Came across this from Spaceweather.com for September 22, 2007


    "MAXIMUM VENUS: In a celestial coincidence of eye-catching proportions, Venus reaches maximum brightness for all of 2007 on Sept. 23rd, the autumnal equinox. In short, northern fall is beginning with a bright light in the dawn sky.

    How bright? This morning in Florida, Howard Eskildsen saw Venus after sunrise:



    "The clouds over Ocala parted to reveal Venus and a deep blue sky framed by fragile fluffs of clouds," he says.

    Shining at magnitude -4.5, Venus is 10 times brighter than Jupiter and 16 times brighter than Sirius--the brightest star in the heavens! And while Venus is visible in broad daylight, it is easier to find before sunrise. No sky map is necessary. Simply look east for the brilliant light.

    BONUS: Got a backyard telescope? Point it at Venus. Like the Moon, Venus has phases, and at the moment it is a beautifully slender crescent. Take a look!"

    Great information. It would be interesting to try to get a picture standing beside the web camera. Hmmm, I will be there in a couple of weeks.

    Can't help bet notice the spot where the sun comes up. Much farther down the lake than it was three months ago.

    Yes, I moved the "sunrise" preset this morning to keep up with the change.

    I was just enjoying the serenity of the lake while drinking a cup of WMB coffee and I was thinking about how beautiful the lake will be this winter. I'm looking forward to seeing it frozen over.

    I will probably lock down the camera in the winter so that we can not move it around. The temperature will be colder than the camera is supposed to operate in - so, we are hoping this will still be okay.

    You might be suprised how cold the cameras continue to operate.

    Obviously you moved the camera to get a shot at your thermometer so you have used your camera through out the winter?

    Don't you think the safe operating temperature indicated is a little on the conservative side? Not that I'd want to be doing the experimenting.
