Saturday September 14 is Sidewalk Astronomer founder
John Dobson's 98th birthday! What better way to celebrate it than by taking our
telescopes to the sidewalk and sharing the views of the moon (and maybe a last glimpse at
Saturn for a while) with you!
Mojo and I will be going to a birthday party for John tomorrow afternoon, so we'll
be hapy to include your wishes if you have a message for John :-)
Join us on the corner of Myrtle and Lime Streets from about 7 - 9 p.m. tomorrow night.
Now for the links portion of my email :-)
We have had some fine bloggers at the telescopes with us recently.
Here is Elson Trinidad's blog about last month's Monrovia Sidewalk Astronomy,
with a detour to the dark sky for some Perseid perusing.
And here is Chris Clarke's "8 best places to see the night sky in LA
If you enjoy the written word as I do, you'll enjoy these two fine writers. :-)
And my 2013 "At A Glance" astro journal has just been updated for September,
clmplete with a link to my What's Up video for September - my 75th podcast in this
See you Saturday, or if not, look up at the moon, and wish Sidewalk Astronomer founder
John Dobson a happy birthday!
