Dears,

Uranus under acceptable conditions, no visible detail,

North polar area is fuzzy, but I could catch 4 satellites :

¤•••••Subject: Two great Mars observers

Received: 13 September 2019 at 03:11 JST

 

Dear Tomoko et al.,
  I found these portraits that may be of interest (and perhaps we can exhibit the one showing Masatsugu with Saheki at
Lowell as part of an exhibit eventually). 

The first shows Minami with Saheki (one of whose telescopes has been sent to Lowell and should arrive soon), who was the most famous Japanese Mars observer.  I believe this is the telescope at the Fukui City Observatory with which Minami often with his friend Nakajima usually observed. 

 The other shows him with Richard McKim, who was the other great historian of Mars dust storms, at the 2009 meeting of Mars observers in Paris and Meudon—the last time I met Minami face to face.

 


 

 Best, Bill Sheehan

¤•••••Subject: Fwd: Logbooks

Received: 13 September 2019 at 02:32 JST

 

Dear Tomako and other friends,

  This is a note from Lauren Amundsen, the Lowell archivist.  The notebooks arrived and are being processed to preserve them, so at the moment they are in deep freeze.  I have not seen them yet myself but will make this my first priority once they are retrieved.  We will be writing up an article for the Lowell Observer about this wonderful gift, and tentatively are planning to have an exhibition about Lowell and Japan which will include them. I will send you pictures of everything as we go forward.

   Again, we are so thrilled to have Masatsugufs wonderful records of Mars.

   Best, Bill

Hi Bill,

The logbooks arrived this morning. Apparently your name on the box confused several people here, but they're safe in the PCC! :) Before I move them past the loading area, I would like to put them through the freezer for two weeks. If you want to look at them beforehand, I'll hold off on the freezer for now. 

 

Thanks,

 

Lauren Amundson

Hi all,

Here is an image from August 27th (16yrs ago to the day of the historic close approach of Mars!)

The GRS is centre. Its quite amazing just how different this region appears compared to back in May-June.
