SoCal FMS Meeting September 2015

This was an exciting SoCal FMS meetup for me because it marked the first time I had my 365nm LW lights put into production. It was quickly given the nickname LongWave of Doom by Jim as it was (and still is!) the most powerful longwave light by a country mile. The special guest of the evening was Kerry Cooper, a high end collector that had several of his specimens published. It was quite interesting and probably lost on me at the time. Afterwards we saw Jim's ever growing collection and inventory. My favorite of the night was the Swedish combination of oranges and reds (calcite/svabite). Incredibly bright material!
