To help us get to know each other, I'd like to know what everybody's most memorable observations are...

Katarina Witt, 1984... oh wait, you probably already saw that commercial.

Seriously, I've been a bit snakebitten when it comes to good stuff like the Leonids. I woke up at 4 a.m. and *tried* to drive out from under a dense fog, but couldn't.

--The lunar eclipse a few years ago was pretty good
--Comets Hyakutake and Hale-Bopp
--Saturn through a crappy telescope
--Many years ago (early 80s), I got to see a good mid-day solar eclipse in Texas

I'll soon have a nice 8-inch Newtonian (see next post), though, and I'm sure I'll be able to add greatly to this list.


3. Uranus in binoculars, 1995

Nice! Is this possible under less-than-ideal skies? I live about 30 miles outside of D.C., and it's not too bad, considering.
