NYSkies Astronomy Inc
THE NYSkies OFFER FOR THE 2018 RASC OBSERVER'S HANDBOOK IS NOW CLOSED AS AT 2018 JANUARY 5. THAT'S WHEN THE LAST COPY WAS TAKEN BY AN ASTRONOMER AT THE NYSkies SEMINAR MEETING. NO MORE REQUESRS ARE ACCEPTED. THE OFFER FOR THE 2019 EDITION OPENS IN SEP-OCT 2018.
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.
