Server Upgrade

Today I upgraded the site to a sever with twice the power as the last one.  I hope this will decrease the page load times during heavy traffic nights.  More news to come later. -Troy

New Live Stream/ What I know about this rocket

From what I've been told they are going to hold off on the rocket until the 24th. Here are a few useful links related to the UAF Poker Flat rocket launch. I also have a timelapse from 2003 that shows what it should look like from the webcam.

I find that this is currently not up to date if the informaiton I've been told is correct.

Live Stream from Poler Flats   
I have never watch this stream while they are launching a rocket. I'm not really sure where the stream is, How it will play out and if it will be on when they go to launch the rocket. As far as I can tell so far it is a bunch of guys setting around in chairs.

Rocket Launch Sample from Dec 2003


Some rocket photos Ive taken in the past:

  • djrmsn : Happy Solstice everyone!
  • djrmsn : After following this discussion, I decided to look at the archives for this week. They are a great way to see that the sun never really fully sets and stays shining bright orange as it continues left to right across the horizon. Thanks for the archives, Troy!

  • george2624 : Daytime picture now at 2:35 AK time is very pretty!
  • Myra : Not for very long. I was there in June one year. Only for about an hour.
  • george2624 : Hi Myra, sky is not dark anymore at 2:28 AK time. I wonder if it is totally dark at all during this time of year?
