What, if anything, do CPFers have to do with the sun?

Do you like the sun's mode interface, or is it too archaic?
What are the best types of flashlight when the sun is coming up?
Do you have lights to compete with the sun, outside, during the day?
How about some photos of these sunchallengers!


Video from two weeks ago. Pics from today.

I love the smell of FM1794 in the morning. Smells like... victory.

I`m super grateful to the Sun because that`s how I get all my electricity for charging all my batteries (about 500W a day) for Free! so I`m really just extending the suns capabilities.
I also like to play a game where I see the sunlight coming into the room at different times of day and try guess which torch matches it`s color, and then when I do I turn up the power and try and hide the beam in plain sight on a wall or odject so that it doesn`t look like there`s a torch on in the room, until you turn it off and can see the change (my kids are amazed by this!) :)

When light you didn't notice suddenly changes... sounds fun, "like someone else's lights came on" LOL

FM1794 at 3ft. vs. a trapped ray spot of noon sunlight.

The biggest, brightest flashlight in the Solar System. Insane runtime.

I have Cygolite and Serfas lights on my bike during my day cycling. Other worldly sun pics lately with all of the smoke / haze from the west.

That second pic is very familiar to me, I see it every year. Still freaks me out seeing that weird red-pink bauble dimmer than the moon hovering in the sky and thinking "holy crap, that's the sun?".

Howdy BB, your morning sky appears maybe some rain forecast.. Boy could Cali use some precip!

No money in it, so it won't get built, but I believe there was a design to run a big water pipeline from Florida all the way out West. They should really do that. Florida has so much fresh water it could turn California into a tropical rainforest.
