Hawaiian Weather

Leave a comment

And the weather report from Hawaii today is: temperatures -5 to -7, windspeed 60 to 100 mph with gusts up to 120 mph. That means with windchill it would feel like -28. Eat your heart out Edmonton!

Those are the real figures, but that’s because I’m on the top of Mauna Kea failing to get any observing done because of the wind.

It’s an astronomer’s life.

In the meantime I’m carrying on work on the Infrared Astronomy book. Today I learned that Titan has a methane cycle the way the Earth has a hydrological cycle. Maybe it should be called the mythalogical cycle?
