To all astronomy buffs,
I found an extremely wonderful program on the web a while back called Home
Planet. This program was written by John Walker, one of the founders of
the AutoCAD program. He is now retired and living in Switzerland and his
program is FREE. It can be found at:
This is a Windows program and is a very large download but well worth it.
It shows the sky at any time or date from anywhere on earth. It also has a
screen saver that shows where the sun currently shines on earth and the
current phase and position of the moon as well as over a thousand
satellites currently orbiting the earth.
Also, I posted this a while back but never got any responses so I am asking
the list again. Our CC is also an ASM in our local troop and is looking to
find a copy of the old Blacksmithing MB book for one of the other ASM's.
If you have one or know anyone who does and is willing to part with it for
a reasonable amount, please e-mail me privately.
