Jan 29th, 2017: Solar Analemma
The Solar Analemma sounds like an energy efficient enema, but it's not.

http://epod.usra.edu/ has 9 pages of search results for analemma in their own archives! They LOVE those things . The one shown here appears to have a single extremely exceptional detail--on the left, just near where the crossover that makes it a "figure 8" shape, appears to be a solar eclipse.

Not buying the only 20 people claim.

Why not, Jim? If 20 people have been proven to have done it, and it's so difficult to do, why would you go to the trouble and expense to do it yourself? Because it's there? It's also on the net. It's much easier to do the Moon, that only takes a month, and less equipment.

Could climbing Mount Everest be any easier, safer or cheaper?

But you don't need a camera to climb Everest.

Also, not buying the "only 20 people" bit.

Have you done it? Do you know anyone who's done it? Have you heard of anyone who's done it? Have you ever heard of anyone who would want to do it? If you do, ask them why the fuck they would even contemplate it?

I believe it. Even if you can dedicate gear to sit there all year long, or you have the precision of a Swiss watchmaker to get your gear set up exactly the same way each time, and the weather cooperates with you, the likelihood is that it won't work out properly. Well, there's always next year...

Thinking about it, it's a pain in the ass to do. There's the technical aspect of it and the time aspect. the technical aspect would be fun for a week. But the time aspect...

And for what? No fame or fortune, show it to someone and they ask if those were the same drones they used at the superbowl.
