Good to see you still have skin in the game. Sorry we lost John Oliver; he came to talk to the EAAA after his retirement. I am calling it quits August 8th, after 47 years in the system. E-mail me at wwooten@pensacolastate.edu and will send you an eclipse mug from my wifes Draco Productions when I have your PO mailing address. We have a lot of near Iridium and other satellite shots up on the EAAA facebook page at:

Howard, we are planning to start interviewing replacements for my astronomy professor tenure track position at Pensacola State very soon. If you know of any U of Fla folks interested in applying, call me at 850-484-1152 and will try to get them in the applicant pool.
