Hi everyone,

We had over fifty fourth and fifth grade students participate in our 
Lunar Eclipse-Star Count Party last night.  The students were 
outside from seven until alomst 9:30  Unfortunately, the cloud 
cover prevented us from seeing anything.  Parents stayed up to do the 
color cover, but still, there was 100% cloud cover.

We were glad to see that over schools were able to see and do the count.  
We'll be using your data to do a lat/long star count correlation.
