Dear Mr. Minami and Mr. Murakami,


 sorry, I had almost no free time last week: no time to establish a good template for the data where I could only change the figures and the picture. I think I have time on Tuesday.

Thank you for the compliments; frankly speaking I haven't been yet at the museum. I know where it is, I often see the signs (in japanese as well), and the wife of a retired professor in astronomy was some years ago the vice-president of the society which maintains the museum.

that's true, I often happen to meet him on my way to the office, when he goes to the university hospital by bicycle. In the last years, he spoke 2 or three times on our lecture evenings, concerning Mars (2001) and the African Eclipse (of June, 2001). But I guess he is very busy in his job at the moment and has very little time for astronomy.


With best regards
