Stephen James O'Meara's Secret Sky: Readers report 2009
September 2009: From ice crystals to a cluster's heart, I've read about some interesting observations.
July 27, 2009
Once again, thank you to everyone who has e-mailed me with observations. I've enjoyed reading them all and plan to devote future columns to some of the topics. Until then, I'd like to share with you a few interesting reader reports.
