Looks like you're still having fun! The second cracker shot it my fav but I don't know what that is before it other than the bullet just before it hits. How slow was your shutter speed?

I'm gonna take a guess here.. on the cranker shot.. its a pellet gun, my guess is you have the pellet gun quite close to the cracker and its cracker dust from the air reaching the cracker before the pellet!

My guess is ...You hit the cracker to the right side correct? The flash of white I think is actually like a vapor trail. The air leading in front of the pellet is whooshing around the cracker changing direction and condensing for a split second. The way it looks also, your pellet gun may shoot a little high and to the left.

I may be incorrect at this but I gave it my best shot.

I'm not sure, I like the blast of air propellant from the pellet gun idea. It seams plausible. On a side note, I see you shot the same cracker twice. Nice job recycling smile

Light from the flash beaming through cracker holes?

Fun stuff at your house these days! My favorite is the ice cube - and I'm with Dietz on the cracker shot, air blowing dust/flour thru the cracker before the pellet hits.

Well the pellet gun was about 2' from the cracker, I would guess that DD might be on to something. smile And Yak not only do I re-shoot the cracker multiple times, I get a snack when I'm done shooting it. smile

Now if you were really good you could recycle the egg too!!! Now that would be a real skill..... smilecrazy

Save the cracker crumbs and scrambled eggs and you're ready for your next fish fry!

    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
    •     What are ya, a parrot? Someone needs to tune you...with 220 volts of inductance. *ZZZZZT*  
    • Well you guys could have given me this info before.
    • Not in disagreement....most Ice gear is though.   Just trying to find some feed back on if it works well and lights up like it should.
