I will get it here but it's not the best timing, it'd mean an all nighter on a Sunday through Monday morning.
I'll have to see what we can figure out as it gets a bit closer.

I got this book for my wife, I haven't had the time to get to it yet.
Here is hoping the author will go back to a bit of sci-fi after the little project he is working on now.

Same for me, I gave up on it in the end and was following a rather thin live blog, I think the bbc article I found gave me more info than the blog.

Ar2339 8/5/14

I braved the wind and cracked the newt out for some white light images of AR2339 and am fairly happy with the results. The wind won out the day before I could do any barlowed close ups though.

Thanks Don for that.
