Regarding: yesterday’s post, Eutrophic Lake Okeechobee
This morning, for purposes of documentation, I am posting the path my husband, Ed Lippisch, flew over Lake Okeechobee yesterday (6-10-20) and all aerials taken. Thank you to my brother Todd Thurlow, who shares technical information on his website, for re-creating Ed’s path via Flight Aware, and for also sharing the latest satellite high resolution images of Sentinel 2 retrieved 6-9-20. All of Ed’s phots displayed in gallery format below were taken from 2000 to 1500 feet on return flight along southern portion of Lake Okeechobee ending at Port Mayaca, east central, Martin County. His flight to the west coast was at 5000 feet and Ed said he saw no algae visible from that perspective.

Thanks: Just finished Hodding Carter’s, and Ernest Lyon’s first book, and just worried, amazed, and wondering also, why we just can’t buy all the land south of Lake O, and make the Everglades a river again. NASA’s budget is $20 Billion this year, Space FL, ?. Explore the 6 aquifers beneath FL, and get them working again, instead of putting more “poop” on the moon.
Helen I always wait for your comments. Have you written Congress yet? Godspeed to you.
