    I'm off to Kitt Peak for their nightly observing program. It will be my first time in a true dark sky location! A very nice change of pace compared to the 100 or so hours I've worked in the past 8 days. I'll say hi to Andromeda for everyone here!

    P.S. Please keep Phinds from ripping the newbies to shreds while I'm gone. I've stashed his bone in the pantry next to the rolled up newspaper. Apply newspaper liberally if needed.

    You have to go to McDonald Observatory, Dark Sky Drive, Fort Davis, TX.

    We need to do a PF Star Party, either at the Grand Canyon or McDonald Observatory.

    My space physics class spent a couple of days and nights there, back in the good ol' days, with two 14-inch telescopes. Amazing viewing.
