      Thanks!

      You're right -- up by the dam overlook might not be too bad.  Pity development surrounds it . . .

      Just figured that I should have a place to head for next time the conditions are decent.

      Hi Russ - try out towards Lake Georgetown.  If any of the parks are still open after dark, they would work.  To be honest, if the high, thin clouds stick around, you probably won't be able to see many, no matter how dark the surroundings.

      Hi!

      OK, this is off topic I know.

      Barb, Reid and I have been trying to view the Persid (sp?) meteor shower the last view nights. However, the neighborhood is your typical sinkbowl of trees, houses, street lights, etc, all of which render all but the brightest meteor essentially invisible.

      So, does anyone have a suggestion for a good star gazing spot within an hour of Round Rock? Dark and with a good horizon is what I'm looking for. Safe parking and no locals with shotguns considered major pluses . . . <wg>

      Thanks!

      We now return you to your regularly scheduled programing . . .
