Pan-STARRS

The Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System (Pan-STARRS) is an array of astronomical cameras and telescopes and computing facility that is surveying the sky on a continual basis, including accurate astrometry and photometry of detected objects. By detecting any differences from previous observations of the same areas of the sky, it is expected to discover a very large number of new asteroidscometsvariable stars and other celestial objects. Its primary mission is to detect near-Earth objects that threaten impact eventsand is expected to create a database of all objects visible from Hawaii (three-quarters of the entire sky) down to apparent magnitude 24. Pan-STARRS is funded in large part by the U.S. Air Force through their Research Labs.

Which is the World’s Most Expensive Photograph? “Approaching SFO Over Presidio Yard” or “Rhein II?”

Better A…

…or B?

Hint: One is worth $4.3 million and the other is worth $0.0 million.

Oh well.

Speaking of which, does MUNI pay full market value for the land it uses up at the Presidio Yard?

I wonder.

And for the record, here’s your SFO approach cheat sheet:

OMG, Lexus “Laws of Attraction” at City View Metreon – SF’s Party of the Year – World Premier of New LS 460 F Sport

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Now why did Lexus choose San Francisco, of all the cities of the world, as the place to debut its “Laws of Attraction” exhibit and to unveil it’s brand-new LS 460 F Sport model?

I don’t know, I guess we’re special.

Hey, look who was there, high atop the Metreon at City View:

It’s  the Stars of the Lexus Laws of Attraction Photo Exhibit as they pose with the 2013 Lexus LS: (left to right) Jonathan Adler, Simon Doonan, Devon Aoki, James Bailey, Jaime King, Kyle Newman, Brady Cunningham and Jason Schwartzman.

Man, this Monday night party was off the hook – I was transformed from an overweight Dell Jockey into an overweight Dell Jockey at the City View:

Oh, and what’s this just outside but four stories up, a Lexus supercar, the likes of which I’ve only seen once before? How did they get this halo vehicle to the roof of the Metreon? Crane, chopper, ramps, giant elevator? It’s a mystery:

(You can’t just buy one of these, Lexus has to invite you to buy this $400,000 car. There’s just 500 in the world, that’s it.)

The place was packed, hundreds and hundreds of party-goers were up there:

Oh, here we go, the moment of unveiling:

Do people take iPads to parties to take photos these days? People do:

See the photos behind the car? That was the point of this shindig, deets below:

A good time was had by all, all the dolled-up gals from the east and south bay and all the older dudes from Marin…

If you ever get invited to a free party hosted by Lexus, jump at the chance, is all I can say.

Get all the deets, see all the art photos of the couples, see the new, sportier Lexus, see the new “spindle” grill, see the less-luxurious, performance-oriented SPORT F sedan, see it all, right here and/or after the jump.

Wow, the Best Photo of the Bay Bridge I’ve Ever Seen – Another One From Famous Photographer David Yu

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

This is from the western span, you know, the one with the functional towers:

Of course, the eastern span, the one they’re still working on decades after the Big One of 1989, will have an ornamental tower. Oh well.

Anyway, this is a nice shot.

 

Wow: Marin Headlands, Golden Gate Bridge, Conzelman, Bay Bridge, Financial District, Sutro Tower, Sunset District and Fog
