I understand your sentiment Kat. It is unfortunate that it has gotten to the point that you spend more time struggling to keep your threads from being derailed and apologizing than actually engaging in real conversation on ATS anymore. I think most people understood the intent of your post. Some of us have a wry sense of humor and some have a well honed talent for double speak, but in days gone by, their input just added a little spice and levity to a thread. Posting on ATS is quickly becoming only for the brave, thick skinned or those with a cult following or entourage.

To get back on topic; in light of the fact that our systems are not up and running, it is a good thing that our country isn't the only country with eyes to the sky. Hopefully someone will share with us some of the better, accessible, sites for observing the vastness that surrounds us.

Such a beautiful image indeed OP.
I enjoy watching the cam as well, it's a shame it has been signed off. Peculiar . . .
Seems a lot of these are being signed off.

I'm a little worried that we can't access ANY of NASA's websites, this is all I get when I try and enter one.

When are all the budgets in the US sorted and paid out? In the UK, budgets are worked out in the first quarter, and the lolly goes to the government departments in April, the money is in the bank or banks for that financial year.
JPL is open, and operating under a non-update basis, I've been browsing Curiosity pictures today, 'til my eyeballs fell out.
The only childishness I see here is NASA. Yes, the sillyness starts at the federal government level, there is no need for the like of NASA to pursue it. I suppose everyone at NASA has gone home, except anyone in the ISS, unless they took a walk too...Of course they haven't. NASA is still manned, the ISS camera will still be rolling, as likely as the pictures are still being received.
Maybe this won't happen again when Urthecast starts it's new setup on November 20th..see link,

Yes there are some people still working at NASA. But not many.

JPL is open, and operating under a non-update basis

Did you know that JPL is not a government agency?
Did you know that JPL employees are not employees of the US government?
Do you know where the nasa.gov server is located?
Do you know if it is the same server as mars.jpl.nasa.gov?
Do you think it might make a difference?


The only childishness I see here is NASA.
I guess the National Park Service is being "childish" too.

Yes national parks and all the rest are being childish.
JPL is financed by the Federal government, it matters not if they are not civil servants. I don't know about any of the various servers, I don't care. if it is they who do a switch off on the day, it is the only one I know of, and if so, in my mind they are feck-ups.
Did the Asteroid lasso conference pack up and go home a day short today?
My question was more about budgets anyway and you know that, yet the only thing that peeved you was my reference to childishness. You said that to the OP, and it was unfair to say that. The OP had concerns and expressed them, yet it ends up as if a scare monger while talking shiite.
BTW, I know there are staff at NASA, Meh....

Nice rant. Ironic that you bring up childishness. "I want my space movies!" And you aren't even paying the taxes that give them to you.

But its also the fools in Washington who seem to be childish. And I don't mean NASA.

Stealthy,

Yes I agree, quite the thing that makes you go HHMMMMM......

I have missed all of the meteor sightings, but look forward to being able to see ISON. With my own eyes.
If anything happens, like an asteroid, or meteor takes something out, we can't blame them can we?

This whole shutdown thing is just flat out stupid, and agree with the poster that said we need to clean house, and start over, and we pay them to work, not shutdown, Oh wait a minute, they are still getting paid. That must be nice, I thought we paid them to be mature adults, and perform the task they were appointed to do.

Sorry, I live in the real world, if we, at my work, tried this stunt, we'd get fired........Not a bad idea, start at the top and work your way down.

First paragraph,
Well, I'm in the UK, the UK is a funder to the ESA who collaborates with NASA, who also collaborates with non ESA countries, and it is likely that the ESA will collaborate with NASA on any Mars mission, which means that ESA will likely collaborate to the asteroid lasso job and anything else in between, which means that UK £'s are coming out of our pockets.
Second paragraph, I already said that as regards Washington.
And yes I want to see My, Yours, Our "space movies" though I do actually prefer real-time stuff.

Well guys this is undeniable proof that Phage is not the government shill he's accused of being, on account of the fact he'd be off the clock today if he were.

Is the goverment shut down on perpose? I mean is a false flag going to happen while Congress is out of the picture and hideing in there bunkers. Will a meteor hit earth that they know about and us sheepies are going to fend for ourselfs? There is a lot of strange meteors in the sky lately that could be the reason for the goverment shut down to not cause a public panic.

Any thoughts?

Many things are down due to the shutdown including the Yellowstone Live Webcam. However NOAA Data Bouys are up as Due to the Federal Government shutdown, and most associated websites are unavailable. However, because the information This Site provides is necessary to protect life and property, it will be updated and maintained during the Federal Government shutdown. It seems that this site is still up.

Well THAT is a little odd....why is that one still up if it's Nasa?

I hear ya! I guess I should toughen up, even though I have been here quite along time....my feelings get hurt too easily sometimes. Thank you for your thoughts! Oh...and I agree there should be more eyes on the sky!

Firstly it's obviously on a different server.
Secondly, it's an automated system. No humans needed.

The central server, where data storage of each event and automated analysis occurs, also automatically generates a web page each morning containing the particulars of events from the previous night.

articles.adsabs.harvard.edu...

Combination of the two would be my guess. But I wouldn't be surprised if it shuts down before long too.

Yes...this whole thing has got me ticked off...but I stay away from politics on ATS LOL....though the ISS cam won't save us from an asteroid LOL, I just enjoy watching it. It provides a glimpse of ourselves from another point of view. When I see that big blue marble spinning through the vastness of space, I picture how small we are in the scheme of things....and it brings some bit of humility to me. Sort of puts things in perpective. Maybe if we took more time to notice things like that, the world would be a much better place.
Yeah...I'm a dreamer LOL!

Well....I don't believe that. It's just politics as usual. They are taking things away until they get what they want.
