      Hi Reggie,

      I saw that was going to happen tonight.  I think we're a bit late on it.  Any pictures?

      BTW, I think they're going to play the Halloween video on Saturday at the VIS banquet.

      Hope all is well with you.

      Hey, Don. Everything is great. I shot some video of the occultation that I'm going to post. I was up until 2:40 a.m.! That's great about the VIS banquet; I'm going to make it a Halloween ritual to show my friends our video. I had shared it with some of the local astronomers; they were really impressed. Plus, we just got some nice upgrades on the local observatory and planetarium. I'm stoked! :happy7:


      Hope you're doing well, too,

      I'm looking forward to seeing the videos , moon is up during the daytime here in states. No moon at night , man I wish my dsi would work perfect for imaging those really faint fuzzies. SB

  4. Out hunting Perseids this morning! Just came inside for a moment to post. My first was a bright one with a long trail in the western sky, streaking in an almost perfect line from north (just under Ursa Major) to south (under Boötes). Stellar! Hope everyone gets an opportunity to see some. Peace out :headbang:

      Glad you got some clear skies to observe them. Clouded out again last night, but hoping for a clear spell tonight. :)
