From Samuel WHITBY
@. . . . . . Thank you for keeping me up to date on the observations of brightenings in Mars' Edom. That Don Parker is one of the observers adds a great deal of credibility to the observations.
The weather here has been what one could call anti-astronomer but frog and fungi friendly (tree frogs have croaking in our back yard), overcast, often rainy, with wind and sometimes thunderstorms. Day before yesterday, we had a hail storm. This afternoon the sky is overcast, but there is some likelihood of clearing. Maybe I will be able to observe.
The CMO Gallery is very impressive and a great addition to the page. You have some highly skillful observers and imagers. Sincerely,
(8 June 2001 email)
