CFI Investigations GroupDate:
November 16, 2019
This month’s meeting will begin at Gravity Hill this Saturday at 11:00 a.m. (See directions below.)
THERE WILL BE NO MEETING AT CFI THIS MONTH.
We will perform a few simple experiments on the roadside to confirm that the earth’s gravitational field is intact despite what it looks like or does to your car.
We will then adjourn to lunch at Coco’s in Sunland, 10521 Sunland Blvd, Tujunga, CA 91040 , about 15 minutes from the site.
Here are the directions:
Want to see the uncanny effect of “Gravity Hill” for yourself? There are a number of spots with similar optical effects, but here’s how to find the one we investigated. In the town of Sylmar, California:
• Exit 210 fwy on Foothill Blvd
• Turn R on Foothill (East)
• Quick L on Osborne St.
• After 2 blocks, L on Garrick Ave.
• R on Kagel Canyon, go about 2 miles
Site is on Kagel Canyon Road, right in front of the entrance to Sholom Memorial Park.
As you pass hedges on the left and see a couple of large trees and the turn-in to the memorial park on the left, and a utility pole to your right, stop your car, put it in neutral, and take your foot off the brake and you’ll feel it coast backwards, “uphill”.
