Ok. I know this is a stretch, BUT. Work will have me traveling to Houston next week and St. Lucia the following week. Is there anyone out there that knows the schedule for any Astronomy Clubs in those areas that offer viewing to visitors. I will be in those areas Monday through Thursday of both those weeks. I would truly love a quick bit of viewing in St. Lucia in particular as this is most likely my last trip there.

My fingers are crossed (and toes). Thanks!

My wife and I went to St. Lucia on our honeymoon. Very pretty, but still alot of light pollution as there arent very many places to go out of the cities.

I actually live about 30 miles from Houston as well. But I think most everyone was caught up in TSP this last week.

Hope you enjoy my neck of the woods.

All good Smitty, thanks. The opportunity never presented itself in Houston. I'm in St. Lucia now and don't think I would be able to take the time anyway.

And I do like Houston, been there several times.
