What a 75 point track looks like!

Post by SmithES » Fri Sep 28, 2012 10:34 am

Hey, guys, Miracle of miracles----I saw a faint horizontal streak on left side- a little above middle. Had no idea it was a track, but clicked on it because it looked odd to me. Couldn't believe it when my Power Score jumped from 12897 to 12972! Thought I'd post it to help others who might see same movie. Evelyn ERSTRS, SmithES

Amazing Elaine! I had to look long and hard at high magnification to find that one; the current PMs can be quite cheeky can’t they?
Sadly, I’ll probably miss it next time that it comes around as a PM, and more importantly if anything similar were instead to turn out to be a real track.

Hey, John, It's a VERTICLE track. Must not have been thinking clearly when I sent it. So, hope you were looking at the real track. It's verticle---just below the large dark blob.

Don’t worry Evelyn. I found your track on the assumption that ‘horizontal’ (whether you meant it or not) was equivalent to a HAT, namely ‘high-angle’ to the perpendicular of the collector surface, regardless of 2D orientation in the movie.
Incidentally, it must puzzle new dusters if they look up old posts that the original impact designation HAT is now a LAT & vice versa.

Maybe we should describe movie tracks in terms both of 2D alignment, for example as hour-hand clock number positions from their perceived point of entry, as well as 3rd dimensional impact direction. Yours might then be called a “12HAT” or, being at a slight angle, “1HAT” perhaps? I wonder what terminology the team actually use.

Truly amazing!
And hello again fellow dusters, after a series of events that keep me away during phase IV I'm back :mrgreen:

P.D.: Credits also to Robert who helps me to regain access to my forum account since the forum was hating me :lol:
