Many folks would like to see us back on the Moon and developing its resources.

Good day
If you missed the Lunar Eclipse (I got up but too late.) SpaceWeather has a
nice picture.
The Moon was bright and will be tonight too along with Mars as it rises in
the East.
Thanks to Kendall for waking me out of my trance.
I have been studying the Pioneer 10 documents and trying to understand what
all went on for 30 years.
The old documents that had been archived where I used to work have been
moved to Ames History and I will talk to them to see if there is a way to
share some of them with the general public.

Looking for Mars? Tonight you can find it using the Moon as a "landmark." Go
outside between 9 and 10 p.m. local time and look east. (You can do this
even earlier if you have a clear view of the eastern horizon.) You'll see
the Moon and Mars rising together in the eastern sky. Both are bright: The
Moon is almost full and Mars looks like a brilliant orange star. If you're
impressed by Mars tonight, you'll be even more impressed two weeks from now
when Mars makes its closest approach to Earth for the next 13 years. Get the
full story and a sky map at .
EXTRA: Amateur astronomers are monitoring a growing dust storm on Mars big
enough to see through backyard telescopes. Visit for
images and updates.
Good Morning, Larry
Wanted to give you a heads up:
The Moon and Mars are going to be conjunct
tonight (10.18) and in the early morning hours
of tomorrow (10.19). Should be spectacular!
Hope you are fine.
Here's to looking up!
Kendall Johnson
Thanks for looking up with me.
