It was a clear night on the first of April, 1997. Outside my window at home in Philadelphia was this apparition, a veritable Heaven's Gate. So, I got out my toys.

This includes a 60 millimeter 22 power (wide angle) Bushnel SpaceMaster scope, a Connectix Quick Cam, and a 33 MHz 386 PC running Linux. This provides 320 by 240 pixel images with 6 bits of gray. It is attached to the computer via the parallel port.

I'm using red text. It doesn't ruin your night vision.

Here it is.
