Short notice, but I was just cleaning the spam out and found that Dr. Albers at NASA had accidentally gotten relegated to there. Oops!<br /><br />I'm going to trim and leave the pertinent stuff from the email for those interested:<br /><br /><br />[...]<br /><br />[Ursid shower]<br /><br />That means that if you can run a camera Sat morning before dawn (the Moon<br />will be low and set before sunrise) or Saturday evening after darkness, you<br />might capture unique data about the shower leading up to or after the<br />predicted peak.<br /><br />Observations will be challenging as there will be a full Moon and the<br />meteors may not be very bright. Point away from the Moon and have something<br />blocking it if possible.<br /><br />The next interesting shower is the Quadrantids on Jan 3/4.<br />http://quadrantid.seti.org/<br /><br />[end]<br />------<br /><br />Alas, I'll be in Washington at the Quadrantid peak. The odds of clear skies there are somewhere between Nil and "What are you smoking?"... <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p>.</p><p><font size="3">bipartisan</font>  (<span style="color:blue" class="pointer"><span class="pron"><font face="Lucida Sans Unicode" size="2">bī-pär'tĭ-zən, -sən</font></span></span>) [Adj.]  Maintaining the ability to blame republications when your stimulus plan proves to be a devastating failure.</p><p><strong><font color="#ff0000"><font color="#ff0000">IMPE</font><font color="#c0c0c0">ACH</font> <font color="#0000ff"><font color="#c0c0c0">O</font>BAMA</font>!</font></strong></p> </div>
