    Glad to see you too Robert. Agree, in spite of clouds it turned out to be a fantastic event. Worth the slow drive through the fog. Thank you RASC and RAO

    Hi there:

    I am interested in attending and certainly would like to catch a glimpse of comet PannStarrs. New to Calgary, don't have a car yet but can get to any train station. Anybody willing to help with the transportation (from Shawnessy station I would suppose)?
