They hosted ASTC in (I think) 2008--it is a gorgeous museum, amazing grounds!

14:14:43 From Nick Strobel to Everyone:

Yes, we do need a dome several miles across for it to be more realistic. Waiting for funding for that…

14:15:40 From Ken Miller to Everyone:

Easy bribe!

Thank you!

14:33:36 From Guilherme Frederico Marranghello to Everyone:

I see Southern Cross from here 😉

14:36:42 From Heather Jones to Everyone:

How would wayfinder figure out their longitude?

14:38:30 From amy to Everyone:

Since there was no way, traditionally, to find longitude, way finders in Europe as well as Polynesia would “run their eastings down” (or westings)

14:44:19 From amy to Everyone:

. . . that is, go the latitude you want, then sail east (or west) to the correct longitude

14:44:24 From Andy Kreyche to Everyone:

Are there any requests to non-natives about how this information is shared and what is told?

14:48:45 From Nick Strobel to Everyone:

sailing by the seat of your pants

14:51:02 From amy to Everyone:

Is there anything in the genetic or archaeological record that suggests Polynesians landing in South Americaca?

14:55:05 From Karrie to Everyone:

We at Digitalis added the Polynesian constellations to Stellarium with direct input and feedback from the Polynesian Voyaging Society.

14:55:34 From Tony Smith (he/him) to Everyone:

www.hokulea.com is Polynesian Voyaging Society

14:58:02 From John Gus Erickson to Everyone:

The Polynesian word for yam is similar to the Quechua word. An article in Smithsonian says that DNA evidence suugests that Yams originated in the Pacific and were spread by Polynesians.

CHAT POLL:

Would you attend a Planetarians' Zoom Seminar in the morning?

14:58:48 From Nick Strobel to Everyone:

Some Fridays are ok but others have college meetings.

14:59:20 From Vince Tobin to Everyone:

The later in the morning the better.

14:59:24 From Karl to Everyone:

LATE morning would be OK.

14:59:27 From Todd Ullery to Everyone:

Would have to watch the recordings, can't be on live in the morning.

14:59:31 From Cheri Davis to Everyone:

Any time 4 -6 hours earlier would be great

14:59:37 From Karrie to Everyone:

8am to 4pm Pacific time on Fridays work for me, though of course sometimes I have meetings to work around...

14:59:48 From Cal Powell to Everyone:

Retired, so I'm very flexible with time on Fridays.

14:59:48 From Rosemary Walling to Everyone:

any time is ok

14:59:56 From Karrie to Everyone:

I have to run, but this was fantastic. Thanks, Tony, and it was great to see everyone!

15:00:09 From Mary Holt (she/her) to Everyone:

Doing a poll with PPA members would probably be a better gauge of people's availability

15:00:16 From Jason Trump to Everyone:

I cannot attend in the morning. Only afternoons after 2 MST work for me.

15:00:36 From John Gus Erickson to Everyone:

Any time of day is okay for me.

15:00:42 From Bryan Mendez (he/him/his) to Everyone:

afternoons (pacific time) are consistently okay for me. Morning can work, but less consistently so.

15:00:54 From Carole Holmberg to Everyone:

Best for me would be even 1 hour later. I have to leave work before 5 pm on these Fridays to attend, as 5 pm EST I am usually in transit.

15:00:57 From Andy Kreyche to Everyone:

Late mornings or noontime would likely be best. My schedule may be changing, so take this with a grain of salt.

15:01:10 From Tony Smith (he/him) to Everyone:

Not earlier than 10am Pacific please :)

15:01:41 From Guilherme Frederico Marranghello to Everyone:
