Went down to try and see Demo-2. Canceled at the last minute because of lighting. If it had been able to launch 10 min later they could have done it. Lies about light turn out, people were every where.

Venus and MercuryAstronomy, Photos
Took some pictures of Venus and Mercury since it was clear. They will be closer in a few days but the weather probably wont be as good. Mercury is just above the trees.

Yearly house photosHouse
Cut down the apple trees. They all had fireblight and were dying anyway. Stumps are still there. Ripped out two garden beds, and had to cap the irrigation at them. They weren't being used.


Natural Bridge 2020Reenactments
Attendance was way down. Got there an hour before and there was plenty of room to park. Almost no one sitting on the ground and a severe lack of reenactors.

This years queen raising failureBeekeeping
Revolves around the weather turning to complete crap for the week I needed to move hives, graft and prep. Then the queen I picked deciding not to lay at all in the jenter set. Tried grafting by hand will see how it goes. Oh and lost the clear plastic jenter tool somewhere in the living room during it all.

Went to Olustee as usual. Vendors very sparse.

Stopped at the Brooksville reenactment after they scrubbed a launch I went to. Now I remember why I dont drive down to Brooksville. The two commentators talking over the whole reenactment, getting facts wrong and just babbling for no reason.

Starlink missionAstronomy
A wonderfully clear night. Caught site of the rocket at 1:40 behind the trees. Really red tonight. Started the camera a bit too early, only get 15 seconds of shot and it finished before it cleared the trees. Also was aimed right at the church lights. Deleted the photo since it was so bad. Was able to follow it to around 5 minutes but it was to faint to pick up with the camera.
