You're welcome. It's actually pretty cool--check the website for special events and then grab the kids and go. There are some very knowledgeable parking lot astronomers out there that will take all the time you want to let you look through their scopes.

Actually, most of them are probably degreed. They are all very nice, too! They were so very welcoming on the night we went to see Saturn in all its splendor. Their enthusiasm is almost contagious! The giant new telescope is amazing, and they are very proud of it.

I am SO praying it is a clear night this Sat evening!

If you are driving to Fossil Rim, you should drive up 281 and cut through Hico to 67. Its a beautiful drive. There used to be great catfish restuarant on 67 near fossil rim with sawdust floors, big hardwood tables, and real lemonade.

Oh what a great idea...thanks, think we will do that.
Do you (or anyone else) know the name of the place??? Catfish sounds like a nice idea. Would I know it if I saw it without knowing the name??? (Like does the sign say catfish or something??? Anything to help find such a great place to stop for lunch would be most appreciated!

Default Where to watch annual Leonid meteor shower?

I just heard 10PM Saturday would be the time when the Leonid meteor shower peaks:

MySA.com: Metro | State (http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/metro/stories/MYSA111207.6R.skywatch.25f216e.html - broken link)

Anyone knows if Eisenhower Park at NW Military a dark enough spot for watching the show?

Thanks.
