I'm flying into Orlando and am looking for a good observing site for Monday night/early Tuesday. Are there any clubs or groups within a couple hours of Orlando that would be open to sharing there site with someone from cloudy, snowy Michigan? Please let me know at fletcher92@dogmail.com Your consideration would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,
Mark

Mark,

Go to http://www.cfas.org/scc.htm to see the location of Central Florida Astronomical Society's Seminole County (just north and east of Orlando)Dark Sky site. I was at this site with them last month and the skies are very dark to the east and south, somewhat lighter to the north, and much brighter to the west (towards Sanford). The calandar ( http://www.cfas.org/AstroLog/2002Nov/page3.html ) shows that they will be at the site tonight or tomorrow morning for the Leonid meteor shower and on both the 29th & 30th of the month.

Regards,

Bob Veazey
