Sendo: Vancouver, eh? Any movies currently in production up there?
Yeah.. all the time! My office is in downtown, and they always take up our parking spots with movie trailers...
In fact.. haha.. My car was in scenes from that new movie Invisible as it was taken right outside my office...
First post on the BAUT forum, but I've been "driving by" here for awhile, and have been reading the Bad Astronomy website for even longer.
I'm not an astronomer (just a simple country molecular biologist) but I do occasionally do some observing, and I have an interest in all things science.
Hi Nick !
Welcome to Baut!
It's not only astronomy is being discussed here , you can check out the Gen Science Section where you can relate since you're biologist at the same time you enjoy browsing other sections here.
See you around.
Thanks for letting me join. Please allow me to introduce myself and give a little background. My username is 'sagittarius', real name Steve. I am a physicist with specialisation in radiological science. I enjoy astronomy and often take my nieces and nephews star gazing. I always enjoy learning about space, sharing thoughts and ideas, and having open and friendly discussions.
Hope to interact with everyone soon! Questions about me? Please ask.
oh, good job!
Welcome to Baut Steve aka Sagitarrius and cuongnet!
I guess Steve , your chosen ID is your birthday sign.
See you around!
Happy Bauting !
Furthermore, the "astrological" impact of Pluto's demotion. Pluto is still there, so it should effect nothing. But ... the astrologers say...
Another thing that puzzles me is "financial astrology". The only ones who profit are the snake oil salespeople who push this fluff.
I chose 'sagittarius' not only because it is my zodiac sign but the centre of our galaxy, the Milky Way, lies in the direction of Sagittarius. Also didn't astronomers recently discover a small galaxy in Sagittarius that is crashing through the Milky Way?
Thanks again, 'The_Radiation_Specialist,' for the link and great read! I hope to have more discussions.
Hey everyone, I've been lurking here for literally years but finally decided to sign up. Name's Jay, I'm 25 and I'm a geophysicist (and after years of study it gives me great pleasure to finally be able to say that.) I'm currently located in the world's second-biggest London (the one in Canada if you were wondering) but that will probably change soon. There are some really interesting discussions here so here I am to contribute.
Is the 200 mph indicative of something -- like a F3 tornado?
Welcome. Looking forward to hearing more from you.
It's indicative of my love of cars and all things automotive.
And M.P.H. are my middle & last initials so it even makes sense.
Thanks for the welcome!
Welcome to Baut Jay200MPH.
See you around.
Hi everyone, my name's is
Carlos Javier, I am 26 years old and live in Puerto Rico (Just moved here amost 3 months ago actually). I've always been atracted to the night sky and our universe, I like science and math, but my knoweledge about astronomy is pretty basic. I am here on a quest to broaden (did I spell that right?) my horizons. After taking a glimpse at a few of the posts I decided I had to join. I feel I can learn a lot from all you guys and gals here @ BAUTF. I'm glad to be onboard, talk to ya laterz.
welcome aboard Carlos
Name's Jim. Living and working in N. Georgia as the techical manager of a small cabinet shop.' Middle aged, almost qualify as an old fart now...
I have a Tasco telescope, I think it's a 60 x 900, with a busted equatorial mount, that I bought for $20 many years ago. Didn't use it till recently, and then it surprised me. Picks up stuff pretty well for a cheap scope.
I got together with a few friends the other night at a Hog roast and when the sun went down we broke out a few telescopes. I'd left the Tasco at home, but there were enough telescopes it didn't matter.
The one we really had fun with was the 8" Newton, with a Dobson mount. It picked up good detail and was really easy to use. Since then I've got the bug, and want to build one...
But that's another thread...
So in order to find some answers to questions (see above) I went looking for an astronomy forum and found this one. So here I am. I'll post a few questions on the equipment forum in a few.
See ya around.
Welcome Jim! You've found the best Astronomy and Space forum on the web.
NOTE: There may be better telescope-making websites - others here can point you there if need be.
Welcome to BAUT Jim!
My boss' name is Jim too, I wonder if he's interested in Astronomy .
Anyway, See you around!

I am not sure you are supposed to put email addresses in posts, you may want to edit that out.
Could a moderator tell us if there is such a prohibition?
Welcom to BAUT UFOvsUSO!
I am Asian too from the Philippines , what country are you from ?
