I can't believe there was a super nova in M51! Another reason to be ! I was rear ended in Phoenix on Friday and couldn't take out my scope Saturday night! And it was a perfect night in my area!

I hope the only damage was to your vehicle, and not your neck. Whiplash is not enjoyable...

My wife and I both have whiplash and sore stiff backs. He was not traveling slow when we were hit, that's for sure. My new Suburu It didn't dawn on me to call you Ron. We were so confused and upset. We were more worried about my mom than anything at the moment. We couldn't get a ride to the rental car.

Thank goodness you had a newer car, and Subbies are especially stout, as they handle those crashes rather well in protecting the occupants. Let the bodies heal and the insurance get you a new car.

Hi Kevin,
No, we're all currently aestivating because of the heat. For the record, it's 104F in the shade right now. It was so hot earlier today that the flies were walking. Next Public Star Party is scheduled for September 24.

See you then,
John W

Where in the world did you learn that word John? (aestivating) Pretty much sums up my summers here.

"Estivate" is the summer counterpart to winter's "hibernate."

Ron,
I run a serious risk of pigeonholing myself as a "wonk", but I love our language. As an old geezer who worked in construction for a long time, I feel qualified to say that we are measured by the way we use our native language, and that the ability to use a vocabulary is a powerful tool.

I'm here, aestivating my way through the 'Chubasco', and looking forward to those magnificent thunderstorms. However, I look forward to drier skies, and the Milky Way blazing for us in the evening on September 24.

BTW, how do you rate to get that kind of assistance for the GCSP? If I fake some kind of serious disability, can I qualify also?

Clear, Dark,and Steady,

Still a month out but not a bad time to bump this thread as a friendly reminder and something to look forward to as we muddle through the monsoon (even if the high country seems to be hogging it this year).

I have a tripod/poster holder for use by the Wickenburg club if you are interested.

Hmmm. I know I've got a big laminated moon map we could hang on that tripod, might even have a Messier poster.

And if you get bored, it can make a nifty lightning rod!

I picked up a Coronado SolarMax 40 for the Pronto so one of us can be on the Sun and the other on Sol.
