Dear CBAers,

Reminder: Galex will observing TT Ari TONIGHT from 0553->0801 UT - 
perfect for USA observers.  They will be using their grism spectrograph, 
so this particular night is a good one for using filters - assuming you 
have a clear sky.  Of course, the usual time-series is plenty good too.

Kitt Peak, and the southwestern USA generally, continues to suffer from 
clouds and fog.  No stellar photons have been seen here in 2.5 days.  We 
probably be wrapped in another fog bank tonight... but you lowlanders 
might be able to get something.

I've been using the time to prepare spliced light curves so far in this 
very-low state, and would happy to send 'em to anyone who would like 'em.

The star will remain on the Galex menu till Nov. 27 - but only tonight 
for spectroscopy.
