On the wordpress blog (address below my signature), the most recent blog address is a sketch of the Beehive along with a story/lesson.

I have resorted, when time is short, to sketching from a sketch pad notebook. So this sketch is an inverted sketch with notes below.

VERY nice lunar skethces! Sometimes, I feel that there's so much just on (this side!) of the lunar surface, why look at anything else!?!

May I inquire.... how big IS the mirror on the Sky Window device you use.... wondering here about getting one or building one.

Thanks again for the beautiful post!
