From Tom DOBBINS
@. . . . . . I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for calling attention to my article Martian "flares" article that appeared in the May issue of Sky & Telescope. It is very gratifying to have my work elicit flattering comments from such a prestigious organization as the OAA.
I will be joining Don Parker, Maurizio di Sciullo, Carlos Hernandez, Jeff Beish, and a number of other eminent American Mars observers in the Florida Keys (latitude 42 degrees) from June 1 to 8 in the hope of capturing a glint at Edom Promontorium on videotape. I will inform you of our results in a timely fashion. Sincerely,
(13 May 2001 email)
