Contents of the Hourglass are not nec U.S. Army photo by Jordan Vinson Its the holiday season and Kwajalein has some very spe cial Christmas traditions. My favorite tradition for Christmas is decorating my Christ mas tree but on Kwajalein we paint pallet trees. You can get your pallet tree on the corner of 7th and Lagoon Road. I deco rated a pallet tree last year with my mother. There is also the Tree Lighting, held downtown on Kwaja lein Saturday, Dec. 2. The Tree Lighting is after Santa comes from the airport and everyone has a parade to downtown. Santa rides in a trailer and elves throw out candy and toys for the children. Theres singing and music downtown then some one lights up a palm tree with Christmas lights. The kids may want photos with Santa at the Grace Sher wood Library on Sunday, December 3rd. But dont worry if you miss Santa at the library. He usually scuba dives at Emon Beach later in December. During December I like to go downtown to look at the pallet trees and the jumbo Christmas tree, too. Its humongous! Lots of people decorate their quarters with Christmas lights and decorations. I hope you have a very merry Christmas!

Students of Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School welcomed members of the Kwajalein community for the 2017 Turkey Bowl Ceremony Nov. 22 at the KHS Multi-Pur pose Room. The event, an annual highlight for the school, included a variety of perfor mances ranging from masked teachers and parents dancing to Ayo and Teos Rolex to a solo performance of Rick Astleys Never Gonna Give You Up. Before all of the exciting entertainment took place, juniors Graeson Cossey, Pania Alfred, and Jaylynn Debaets presented a renowned Turkey Bowl tradition: Senior Salutes. The girls prepared short, per sonal poems describing the individuals of the Class of 2018 while calling them up to the stage. KHS classes presented their cheers next. The cheers included a wide variety of themes. For example, the sophomore class of 2020 came up with an ode to the senior class, borrowing Elviss hit tune of Sweet Caroline. After all cheers were presented, the judges, U.S. Army Gar rison-Kwajalein Atoll Commander Col. James DeOre, Debbie DeOre, Julia Sekt nan, Michael Hillman, Leimamo Wase decision on the winners: The seniors won poster, and the juniors won cheer. Auguston Lelet and Allison Homuth kicked off the performance part of the as sembly by dancing to High School Musi cals Can I Have This Dance. With their sweet slow dancing, Lelet and Homuth were announced Mr. and Ms. Kwaj High. From their show in the spring, Show Choir presented song and dance number Step in Time. Several remarkable solo and group singing acts featuring Emma Robinson, Kathleen ORourke, Morgan Dethlefsen, Auguston Lelet, Dash Alfred and Hilai Reimers took place. But Minnie Snoddy and Kathryn Montgomerys per formance of Anything You Can Do was a crowd favorite. The duos vocal range and witty theatrics had the audience on its feet. Following up from last year, Mallory Masciarelli, Meghan Connor, Alex Cole man and Kyle Miller played a personal ized jeopardy game, in which the los ing team had mystery liquids and food poured on their heads. Jennifer Newber ry and Doug Hepler also continued their streak of impersonating current princi pals in their annual Consumer Reports. The event, like every Turkey Bowl, was a great way for KHS teachers and stu dents to come together and have some fun outside of the classroom, said KHS Principal Tarah Yurovchak. It was a really fun experience for ev eryone who participated and watched," she said. "Its also always great to see the teachers getting involved in performing with the students." 5 4 2 3 1 SCHOOL SPIRIT SOARS AT 2017 TURKEY BOWL Allison Homuth

By Sharon Watkins Lang SMDC Historian In another year in which the weather has dominated the news around the the early advances in meteorological ex ploration. One such initiative was the TIROS or Television Infrared Observation Satellite launches occurred in April, followed soon thereafter by the launch of TIROS II on Nov. 23 from Cape Canaveral, Florida. joint venture that included NASA, the Radio Corporation of America, the U.S. Weather Bureau, now known as the Na tional Oceanic and Atmospheric Admin istration, the U.S. Naval Photographic Interpretation Center and the U.S. Army Signal Research and Development Lab. The Army Ordnance Corps, had previ ously assigned the Signal Corps "that portion of this problem that involves meteorological instrumentation, includ ing television systems for meteorologi cal purposes. With each launch, the TIROS program continued to evolve. TIROS I, which was operational for only 78 days, sought to test television techniques to develop a "worldwide meteorological satellite in formation system." To achieve this goal, the 270-pound space craft constructed of an aluminum alloy and stainless steel and powered by more than 9,000 solar cells, contained two 35-mm cameras one low-resolution and the other a highresolution. The wide-angle lens camera was able to photograph 800-square miles while the other camera focused upon 30square miles. The two cameras were con nected to magnetic video tape recorders equipped with timing mechanisms that stored the images until the satellite was within range of one of the two ground stations, located at the Army Signal Corps Labs at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, and an Air Force facility at Kaena Point, Ha waii. Over the course of the 78 days, orbit ing the earth once every 98 minutes, the TIROS I cameras captured nearly 23,000 images and clearly showed the cloud cov er views of the Earth and demonstrated "surveying global weather conditions." With a similar construction design, the TIROS II added new equipment to improve upon the quality of the data col lected. In addition to the two cameras and recorders, TIROS II adopted noise suppressor circuits and a miniaturized radio frequency diplexer. Other innova tions included an infrared horizon sen sor for attitude control, a direction indi cator for picture orientation, a magnetic orientation control experiment, and two infrared radiation experiments. backs with the television camera system. Debris on the lens of the wide-angle camera affected the quality of many of these images. The narrow angle camera remained fully functioning until Feb. 1, 1961, but after that produced only spo radic images until Sept. 27, 1961. Nev ertheless the experiment collected more than 25,000 usable pictures, which are housed in the National Climatic Center, in Ashville, North Carolina. The two radiation experiments in eter and a low-resolution, non-scanning, radiometer meanwhile consisted of two detectors -a black and a white thermis tor bolometers. The black detector "responded equal wave terrestrial radiation." The white visible radiation but measured only long-wave thermal radiation." Unfortu nately, the sensors were not as sensitive as anticipated, so the data from this ex periment has been described as "too am biguous for reduction or analysis.' The scanning radiometer, meanwhile, scanned the Earth and space, measur of the Earth and its atmosphere. Each be studied -water vapor absorption, at solar radiation. data before the motor for the radiometer failed in April 1961. Analysis of the data found that "radiation data may be use ful not only for determining the location, motion and development of frontal sys tems but also for obtaining information on the structure of frontal zones." Each launch of the TIROS series, which began with the Army and NASA, im proved weather forecasting capabilities. TIROS-3 for example, made an extensive study of the 1961 hurricane season and is credited with discovering Hurricane Esther. TIROS-4 allowed the U.S. Weather Bu reau to share cloud images with other nations. TIROS-6 expanded the study to the detection of snow cover. TIROS-9 is credited with creating a complete TIROS-10 produced more than 400 im ages a day covering 640,000 square miles each, with a 2-mile resolution at the center.
