You are the
MAN! I wish I was a dedicated to this as you are. I would love to be a part of
Fan Mountain. Just let me know what I need to do. Even if I am the coffee girl I
would be happy.
I accompanied Dr
Salgado and Dr Miller from Norfolk State to the University
yesterday. We spoke to several members of the astronomy
about a possible collaboration with them in building a remote
observatory on Fan Mountain.
We later toured the observatory and
discussed possible sites for the NSU
telescope. Dr Salgado asked me
to attend because BBAA will be an important
partner in the observatory
You can read all about it in next month's newsletter or
you can go to the
files section of the backbayastro site and download (or
read) the full
report. I've also uploaded some pictures from Fan
Mountain. (Click on
photos and then open the Fan Mountain
album.) I'll try to do a page soon on
our HR.Com website too.
The short version is that we got a very positive response from UVA and
project looks like it could go forward with a funding request in
then who knows. I hope to arrange an observing session
at Fan Mountain
sometime this year, along with Dr Sagaldo and a few
interested BBAA members,
to help evaluate the site ...
