thanks for letting us all know. it is suppose to be very spitatactular!! i hope to see it but it is snowing and don’t know if the ski is going to be clear by then. is there a way to see it somewhere other then the sky? i mean is there a site that we can go to see it happening?

Go to http://www.skyandtelescope.com tomorrow for some photographs. You need clear skies, no ambient light from cities and a good view to the SSW near the horizon at dusk.

The two planets, Venus below, will be the first objects to show up in the sky after the sun sets and the sky starts to darken. Moon will also be visible near horizon..All will set fairly soon thereafter since I presume that the earth is still rotating on its axis.

You’re welcome. It’s supposed to be rainy and cloudy here in the Camyans, I’m hoping that I’ll still be able to see it.

For you, Syz, all is always forgiven. Milo sends his love.
