It hardly seems like two months since I flew into Alice Springs for a look around before the annular eclipse on Friday 10th May. My travelling companions included Prof Jay Pasachoff and his wife Naomi, Rob Lucas, Helen Robinson, Cathi Humphrey-Hood, her two children Elswyth and Aengus, Chris Douglass; and on the flight to Alice Springs we met Richard and Margaret Jaworski who joined us in Tennant Creek for the eclipse.During our week based in Alice Springs we took a trip down to Henbury Meteorite Craters (about 145km south-west of Alice Springs) and walked around the craters.

591 and 592 13 March Observatory Dear Sir I was just about writing to you re returns when your letter came. I am sorry you should think that perhaps I considered New Caledonia of secondary importance.

85 Janry 15 1 W. Sautter Esqre Brisbane Dear Sir I had no idea you were so sensitive to criticism or I should not have referred so plainly to the crudeness of you plan (if I may assume it to be yours) of photographing the eclipse, or to the failure in carrying it out.
