Abstract: This note presents elementary geometric descriptions of several simple families of harmonic functions on the upper sheet of the unit hyperboloid in Minkowski three-space. As is briefly discussed here, these calculations grew out of an earlier attempt to construct Poincaré series on punctured surfaces using Minkowski geometry.
