Oscar also pleaded that "I'd like to see more people submit reports than did this past month -- I encourage everyone to participate, not just imagers! You can submit reports by way of images, sketches, or even without any imagery, you can come up and give a verbal report that perhaps includes the conditions you made your observations under, and the details of the equipment you used -- and of course a description of the object as you observed it!"
And perhaps next month we'll post members' photos, sketches and whatnot.
