Dear discuss-lfm members,

It's been great reading about all your successful eclipse
watching/star parties.  Here in western Wisconsin the skies
were thick with cloud cover with no hope of seeing the eclipse
or getting a glimpse of Saturn or Jupiter.  Oh, well... at least
I could enjoy it vicariously through your wonderful descriptions.
Sounds like you are building a good deal of support for astronomy
programs and the Live From Mars project in your schools.

Another way to help promote your special efforts is to make
use of our LFM Press Kit, now available at:

        http://quest.arc.nasa.gov/mars/teachers/presskit.html

This Press Kit will assist you in developing your own local, 
regional,state, etc., outreach/PR.    Helpful hints for
working with local newspapers and TV stations and a sample 
Press Release are now ready for your use.  Please be sure to send
a copy of articles/or videotaped news coverage to Project Director,
Geoff Haines-Stiles as we appreciate reading about 
your successes and your community (and beyond) outreach.
