Here's a summary of plans/dates for the upcoming conference in Big Bear
Monday May 22: Some of us arrive. I expect to be arriving that night,
driving from Tucson.
Tuesday May 23: Others arrive. I believe that Tonny and Jerry are scheduled
to give workshops on that day. Others too - I dunno this
Wednesday and Thursday May 23-24: The conference. You can find the program
details at the "socastrosci" website, where you can also
register, obtain info on lodging, etc.
Friday May 25: Some of us leave. Others may wish to stay for some part
of the Riverside Telescope Makers' Conference, which starts
today just a few miles away. It's probably the biggest
gathering of amateur astronomers in the world, and I
recommend it. I'm not sure whether I will stay for this
extra day; I think not, since I have an observing run
ongoing on Kitt Peak.
Commentary on STARS tomorrow. However, I'm still warmly commending
SDSS1238-03. Despite its faintness, this star is still very worthwhile
for study - mainly for the very strange 7.7 hr period in its light curve.
Hold until relieved!
