Hello all; Thanks Rick, for those of you planning to attend the party at my place, I have the 7 inch Mak in the observatory and plan to set up the C11 next to the roll off roof, so there will be plenty of opportunity to observe this rare event. Plenty of time for the folks setting up for the public star party to make their way over for microwaved leftover pizza. I purchased soda (coke, diet coke, lemonade, sprite, diet Pepsi) and am going for ice. If you wish to drink anything other than this, please bring it along. I will count heads between 7:30 and 8 and order pizza. Hope to see you there (ah, here, actually); Steve Author "Deep Sky Observing--The Astronomical Tourist" Saguaro Astronomy Club website www.saguaroastro.org -- See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please send personal replies to the author, not the list.
