Re: the next one...
- I did find a good site that published dates and
places. Do a search on Solar Eclipse on
www.altavista.com<br><br>PS: Lunar eclipses are much more common for the
simple reason that Earth has bigger shadow than the
Moon, so the moon has much greater chance of entering
the Earth's shadow, than the Earth has of getting
directly behind the lunar shadow. <br><br>And to get a
total eclipse, you have to be positioned with the moon
and sun directly inline, whereas you can get total
lunar eclipses without the need for such accuracy.
<br><br>Hope you find your information.
- The SEDS site has a short list of Messier
Marathon locations where people will congregate to count
the Messier Objects.<br><br>If you would like to join
a group and do it check out this
site:<br><br><a href=http://seds.lpl.arizona.edu/messier/xtra/marathon/mm2002.html target=new>http://seds.lpl.arizona.edu/messier/xtra/marathon/mm2002.html</a><br><br>Many will be happening this weekend.
