Hi Daniel,

The show was great from southern California. Even more impressive to me
than the proximity of Mars was how close Spica was to the Moon -- less
than 2 degrees to the right. So close, in fact, that it was hard to
see Spica until the eclipse was well underway. Once the eclipse was
total, I could also see the dim, 5.2-magnitude star HIP 66098 (76 Virginis)
only 0.5 degrees from the upper limb of the Moon.

Hello All,

For those lucky enough to be able to see it, that Lunar eclipse last night was fantastic, plus the added bonus of a very bright Mars nearby made even more visible by the darkened sky...WOW!

I have an alert on a couple new ebay listings. Some "steelhorse1994"
fake displays from 2011-2012 are being resold by someone. Unfortunately, he sold well over a 1000 of these and they will keep cropping up. It's too bad ebay did not have the spine to retroactively alert everyone he sold to. I dropped the seller a note but heard nothing back and the listings are still active at the time of this writing. So, I also reported it to ebay. Here are the links to the listings:



Best regards,
