Here's one that is sure to set the cat amongst the pigeons. On an atmospheric phenomena forum I frequent, someone asked whether other observers wore hobby related clothing. For example a cloudspotter might wear a t-shirt which says "Cloudspotter", or have a big cloud on the back. Now, whilst don't wear any apparel that specific, I always try to wear Hawaiian shirts and vintage ones at that,
They put me in the right frame of mind to focus on the sky and what is happening up there. Indeed, wearing Hawaiian shirts IS a state of mind
In the above post, the shirts I "model" (ahem!) are from the 50's, 60's and 70's. Every day is a good observing day when you wear one of those bad boys!
Now then, the object of this post, do YOU wear anything special when you are out observing the clouds, something to put you in the right mood or right frame of mind? If you are not too shy or embarrassed, then please feel free to share your wardrobe with the world!
PS If you are wondering what the large mirror is doing under my arm, that is my 16 inch convex halo observing mirror which I use to identify faint phenomena close to the sun.
