Your Government Dollars Hard at Work!  But, I'm happy about this.

WHAT did we ever do without the Internet?  How would I have ever found out this information w/o my GPS, Internet connection, etc.

Want to know what the moon phase will be and how the star field will look when in the West Texas Trans Pecos Big Bend Region?, will it be a "take your breath away" evening full of stars, "My God, It's Full of Stars".

In one of my manic phases  :lol:

Actually, I'm getting pumped about being in BIBE in less than two weeks!  Plus, in checking the moon phase it will be a "dark and beautiful night" in BIBE.  I just can't tell you how much I really like seeing all the stars, the milkyway, planets, etc.
