A last minute surprise, courtesy a fellow stargeek -- there's a night sky festival in the Shenandoah National Park this weekend!
There's even the possibility of relatively clear skies and a drop from the sweltering heat of the past month. Area weather tends to defy forecasting, but -- ?
I will fill up the backpack tonight, and plan to mark the beginning of my 64th year under the stars. Calls and emails? I'll reply on Sunday.
