Good news indeed! Just ordered a copy myself. I already have the Cambridge Photographic Moon Atlas, Clementine, and Rukl, but I love Wood's Modern Moon book so I don't think I can go too wrong with this.

Don't know. I was all happy as there was a book in the mail tonight! Yea! my new atlas arrived! ripping open the shipping envelope... but NO!

:john:

It was another book I'd ordered some time ago and had forgotten about. Yes it's about astronomy (in a sense, and from a brief glimpse I'm pretty happy at what I see) but very esoteric and not the moon atlas I was hoping to see. :crazy:

I actually saw the moon briefly tonight, can still even tell general location! Coming back from holiday shopping. Folks, it's been rough here this year.

If the atlases shipped out on the 12th, there's still a good chance we'll receive them before Christmas.

Today's LPOD, BACKGROUND, has info on a shipment of the atlas.

Chuck Wood said:

Note: "The boxes of the 21st Century Lunar Atlas were delivered to my house on Wednesday - tomorrow they start being mailed out in the sequence that the 125 pre-orders were received."


peace & clear skies

my guess is Charles does most of the work by himself,
or a few helpers,
so it may take some time,
especially with xmas mailings
