Because we are in the thick of the Isabel Stare-A-Thon 2011. You may find yourself far from Isabel, and you may need to get the appropriate equipment.
If you are in Sweden for example, and you reach the terrifying conclusion that you haven’t seen enough live Isabel to fill your quota. You should grab a friendly scientist and with a simple use of triangulation, a graphic calculator, and some conic thingy you can find the perfect angle to see Isabel -9 hours from you! Plus now you have a new science friend that you can share the stare-a-thon with!
Fun fact: Seeing Isabel when you are in Sweden is just like looking into the past, but not!
