Really cool,

I'm kinda dissapointed that It was so cloudy here in Mexico and i couldn't see anythig 'live' using a telescope, Couldn't watch even nearby Jupiter, easily spotted with the unaided eye.

Hmmm it's funny... It was overcast here in Newport as well and funny you mention Mexico. My Mother is on vacation there with my sister and I sent her an IM to watch for it but like you said it was overcast there as well...

Even it we did not see it. It's good research. Can't wait for the next Shuttle mission...

But there may not be another mission if the Russian astrologer wins her lawsuit. She is suing NASA for messing up her horescope, to the tune of 300 million dollars. People are strange.. :-)

Saw the video, that was cool. Hope they get some good data from the comet.

Have not heard of that one... Hmm did not know that astrologers used comets in their "Planetary" alignment calculations. but hey! everyone is suing the US government so all I can say is:

"Go For It"
