Texas Star Party 2002

Photos by Vic & Jen Winter

This was another great year for TSP at the Prude Ranch in Ft. Davis, Texas. The weather was generally cooperative and we had quite a number of good, clear nights. This year, the Ranch had pea-gravel delivered and it really helped to keep the dust down. Planets were the subject at dusk with Mercury, Saturn, Mars, Venus and Jupiter all visible on the ecliptic. This year, John Waggoner's observing list was entitled "seeing double", an objective in viewing two objects in the same field of view. I only witnessed one unidentified glowing object in the cloudy sky on Wednesday night. However, no one could be associated as the source of the glowing goo material, so it shall remain a mystery.
