Time Wasting
Occasionally we come across subjects which are loosely related to soaring, but are just plain interesting. This page is for all the desk jockeys who should be working but have better things (or thoughts) to do.

1   Link   The Unseen Force
A (mostly) invisible energy source is flowing across the United States. Zoom in and see what's happening in your neighborhood.

2   Link   Boulder Flatirons Webcam
Two live views looking west from Davidson Mesa with temperature. You can see what you are missing. Also has time lapse video from the day before and the same day 1 year before. Pretty cool to see that convergence zone build up or to see that the weather last year was the same as this year.

3   Link   WebTrak for DIA
This shows a 100 square mile map view of moving transponder signals, 20 minutes delayed, so you can see what is flying. Place your cursor over the icons and click to open up a box and see xponder codes (look for 1202 codes west of Boulder in the afternoon) and click on the little airplane icon in the box to see the trace. You can also go back to see a few days before to an exact time to see your flight from last Sunday, for example, or to make sure your xponder is working.

4   Link   Osprey Cam
Note the ospreys happily coexisting in the Boulder airport environment. These are their feathered friends to the North. It has come to my attention that the cam was truck by lightning and we are not seeing a live feed... still pretty cool though.
