In two days we have this opportunity.   Come join me at this great viewing spot.  Hope to see you Sat evening.  Mr. Encinias has allowed me to leave after 21:00 in the past (because it is a camping park and has a one way gate at night) and I hope he can still allow that, or we will have about a half hour of viewing
Sunset is @ 20:15 and dark a half hour or so after that.  The moon is not a factor.  Satellites are:
ISS:  -2.9 @ 21:34 WNW-SW37deg up-S.

 



This is one of our annuals and is a wonderful view of the sky and very dark.  The campers are appreciative and one time one of them gave me a meal.  You can camp overnight, if you wish as the ranger there appreciates our visits.  If you can make it, contact me and I will give instructions how to get there complete with Google earth waypoint file and pic.  It really is one of our nicest astronomy places.

I can't make it, Brad, my knee is acting up again. Hope you have a great
time.

Hi Brad,
 
We saved campsites 25 and 26C. Let me know if anyone wants to spend the night so I can leave vacant?

Excuse me John.  I had missread this post some time ago and forgot. Thought you had said you might be coming. I hope your knee is much better.  Or maybe you did say you might because this is an old posting.  Did I lose your latest?
Brad

Hi Brad,
That message is from last year. I guess the knee is better, I've
forgotten about it :)

Too bad Frenchy's is out of the running now, this past Fri and Sat would
have been good nights to set up down there. I enjoyed doing those.

Sorry if you can't make it.  No problem as I have done it by myself in the past, as did Peter L., and now I have two other scopes, so I will miss you, but not sorely.  Too bad you don't get to see the site, if you don't make it.
Love, 
Brad
