Message From the Gatekeeper
Astra's Stargate has been on-line for over 20 years! The new year brings a total solar eclipse
to the United States of America. The newest feature at the "Gate" is
Astra's Guide to the Total Solar Eclipse August 21, 2017 Page. It is really a mini-site on its own
that celebrates the coming of a totally unique astronomical event. It's not that eclipses don't
happen all the time, but that the contiguous US states haven't hosted a total solar eclipse event
since 1979, and that's quite a long time.
There is a Facebook page to help promote the monthly almanac Mr. Ronald A Leeseberg, a.k.a.,
the Star Geezer faithfully provided the "What's Up" almanac for fifteen years. The "What's Up"
almanac and the new guide site are written in HTML5, for those of you out there who
understand web programming. Some day soon the entire site will be converted. Check out
What's Up in the Night Sky? to read the monthly almanac.
Welcome to the Gate!

Beam me back, Astra!
