Thanks to Jane for hosting a wonderful party at her home last night to celebrate the club's anniversary. I have received e-mails asking for Jane's e-mail address because folks want to thank her personally. Unfortunately, Jane's computer is currently indisposed and she does not have e-mail.

Some confusion arose last night about when the Leonid meteor shower is supposed to peak. My current understanding is that the best viewing will be at 11 p.m. tonight and after 4:00 a.m. tomorrow (Tuesday) morning, but what do I know?

-----------------

This just in from Tony Kramer: "For anyone interested in the meteor shower, there is a good web site you can get info: http://aio.arc.nasa.gov/'leonid/ . The web site has a chart that will tell you the peak time for your area. Peak for Mobile should also be around 5:30am. The show should start around 12pm. I watched the shower last year from the North Georgia Mountains and it was an awsome site. I've never seen anything like it. By the peak time it was like fire raining out of the sky! If you didn't see it last year, you need to see it tonight!"

I (Julie) could not get Tony's link to work, but I did find this: http://astrobiology.arc.nasa.gov/news/expandnews.cfm?id=9371, which has "viewing tips" and links to other info on the meteor shower.
