15480 Empire Rd. Benson, AZ 85602 hm ph: 520-586-2244 Yeah, sounds like the observing I did last night from my back yard... Earlier that evening, while having a HAC-sponsored Sidewalk Astronomy event in the local Ace Hardward parking lot in Sierra Vista, we also had a nice sighting of the ISS as it passed overhead. Passers-by enjoyed it when they realized what was happening and were impressed with the views we showed them of Saturn, Mars, Venus, and especially the fat crescent moon. The weather was perfect for our in-town event.

Whiting, and D. Bogan, et al, and it was typical clear dry steady skies all night and we looked at typical 15th mag double-quasars 9 billion ly away, and various typical galaxy structure and various stunning typical showpiece objects, so, you know, same ol' same ol'.
