I am seeking posters to help with an experiment who live below 40 degrees south... the farther the better...


Recommended Posts

Chileans, Sydneysiders, Auklanders?

 

Or anyone else down there wish to help me with some possibly groundbreaking research?

 

Let me know on here or by PM if you prefer.

 

Thanks for reading.

Oh, this is getting exciting!

 

Here's my plan. We need to sink up on four days, both the following two equinoxes and the two solstices. That would be ideal. If you could just be available for the solstices, that would be fine as well. We need to set our cameras up identically, angled up at 180 degrees. We will use spirit levels to make sure our lenses are pointed correctly.

 

On the next available of the four (or two) days:

Or very close to the above we will start recording just prior to first light and we will stop recording just after darkness.

 

That's really it. I will then put the two shots together in one video, side-by-side, and we'll compare.

 

What say you?

Sorry, but scientific experiments are not based on "we need". Aim, method, results, conclusion is the old school approach.

Hi, Theo, it's been too long, lol.

 

This is for observational purposes that can then be replicated.

 

That is all.

The scientific method is based on repeatability.

By explicity describing the aim and method of your experiment, other experimenters can then validate the logic behind it.

I think it's a good idea. As long as you record every possible detail available, with the film it should provide information worthy of analysis.

 

You should definitely check out https://ifers.123.st/  for help and advice allthough I dont vouch for the new age stuff there.

Look up "replicable." And see the post you literally just quoted.

I literally just described the method, as this must be done so those who follow can, in fact, have a chance to either replicate or not replicate the results.

 

Keep in mind, the results will be the raw footage timestamped side-by-side.

I hate giving ammo to nasa trolls, but I have issues both with Eric and also his idiot mod who goes by shpankme (or something close). Eric was the guy who gave us the Zetetics and all of their work, but how the hell did he even learn of it? And I love his presentations, but his idea of a research forum is far different than mine.

Just don't break too much of the ground, you don't want to fall through. 🤣 :classic_biggrin:
