Member Title?
« on: December 24, 2017, 04:19:53 AM »
I am fresh to Cloudy Nights and was wondering what does it mean to have a member name?  And how might one be obtainable?

Do you see where it says "Apollo" over your avatar? That's it.

Scott,

These used to be listed in the FAQ section before the site rebuild but I couldn't find them recently. Are they listed somewhere? Thanks!

Clear Skies,
Brian

Brian, I can't find where the titles are listed on the site, and perhaps that part of the site hasn't been set up yet. But I was able to find a list of the titles and their meanings off-site, and I'm posting a screenshot of that below.

Ah...I knew the title list was posted somewhere on the forum. I just found it, pinned as a sticky thread in the Feedback forum.

Probably a requested title....one could get that during the brief version 2.0 time.

Anyone can explain to me why Vangaurd is in the title? Does it have something to do with astronomy ?

Vanguard was an early rocket / launch vehicle for the United States.See:http://www.spaceline...m/vanguard.html
Vanguard TV3 - Failed Rocket Launch - December 6, 1957
https://www.youtube....h?v=zVeFkakURXM

"Vanguard TV-3, carrying a tiny 3.25-pound, 6.4-inch diameter spherical tracking satellite made of aluminum, exploded on Cape Canaveral Launch Pad 18A just seconds after it was launched on December 6, 1957. The first U.S. attempt to launch a satellite had failed dramatically before the eyes of the world."Hey, I was alive way back then! I was only 3, though.

oowww now you've made me feel really really old !
I remember that, just after you know who launched Sputnik 1 !
Eisenhower was most upset cos as it says "the eyes of the world", , , not to mention the ears of radio amateurs like myself who were all listening to sputnik beeps, and measuring dopler shifts etc&etc, great fun  and feeling sorry for that poor dog (Laika ?) soon after  ahhh those were the days , , ,

But '57 was a good year, my first aurora, humungous big unaided eye sunspot, massive solar max cycle ( non bigger since )
ahhhh

But tell me, was it an urban myth or was it true that the Explorer satellite survived the launch rocket explosion and carried on bleeping for a while after ?
I think a myth ???
