NYSkies OFFER FOR THE RASC OBSERVER'S HANDBOOK
 ---------------------------------------------
    'Hi, Bill, Sandy, Eudoxides. Hi, Janet, and, yo, Hank, Lumbasa, 
Chawchaw. Is Ansonia here?' 
    'Hic adsum.' 
    'OK, club council meeting of September 18th, 2013, is called to 
order. First up are activity reports.'
    'Yo!'
    'Yes, Hank'. 
    'I'm starting plans for our Thanksgiving weekend comet watch. I 
checked with the park commission and we can set up on the town beach.' 
    'What's this all about?'
    'There's going to be this humongous naked-eye comet, with a long 
tail, in the north sky after dark. It'll be a wonderful public event'. 
    'What comet is this? All the ones currently in the sky are 
miserably dim ones of no interest for the public. And so far ISON 
looks like it's fizzling out.' 
    'This will be a large showy comet, but it's not yet discovered. 
Besides that, our club can start collecting requests for the 
Observer's Handbook at the comet watch.' 
    'So you not only think there's a new bright comet out there 
waiting to be discovered, you really think there will be any 
Observer's handbooks left by Thanksgiving?' 
    'Why not? The information in the book doesn't take effect until 
January. That's over a month after Thanksgiving.' 
    'Hank, what leaf are you smoking? Do I hear a motion to dismiss 
Hank from the club council?' 
    Be fair to Hank. There COULD be such a comet to thrill us, like 
comet Holmes did in fall of 2008. MAYBE comet ISON will rejuvenate to 
silhouette the Sun against it. Yes, there COULD be Observer's Handbooks 
left for you by Thanksgiving. 
    Do you really want to do your astronomy on such slender hopes? 
    In this episode, Hank went into detox and put in his request for 
the Observer's Handbook good and early. He also dropped the comet 
watch idea, a collateral benefit. 
    Like in previous years, the damage, only $22 each, INCLUDES pack & 
post to your postal mailbox. Also like in previous years, this offer 
is valid ONLY within the United States. We must return unfilled all 
overseas requests.

Oh, sure, there'll be a new bright comet by Thanksgiving, like there 
are any 2018 Observer's Handbooks left by then. Here's my request for 
_____ copies at $23 each. Attached is my check, from a US bank in US 
dollars, for $_______, payable to 'NYSkies Astronomy Inc'. 
    Send the book to me at: 
name______________________________. address__________________________. 
apt_______. city____________---________. state_______. zip___________. 
day phone______________________. evening phone_______________________. 
email_____________________________@___________________________________. 
Mail payment and completed coupon to 'Observer's Handbook, NYSkies 
Astronomy Inc, 979 East 42nd Street, Brooklyn, NY 11210'.
    While there almost for sure will be NO bright comet up there 
around Thanksgiving, you WILL have your Observer's Handbook.
