I probably should have mentioned this earlier, but for some reason it escaped me: I am in Redding California (not all that far from where I used to live, in fact!) to give my Moon Hoax talk at Turtle Bay Exploration Park. Weather and mechanical problems meant I didn't arrive until well after midnight, and I'm writing this right before I'm hitting the hay (I left home before 11 a.m. local time, so I've been on a plane, in a car, or cooling my heels at various airports for over 14 hours). I'm looking forward to this because it looks like a cool place... plus I'll be talking to some kids first, and have time to see an exhibit called "Are We Alone?" which is on display here.
So if you're in the area, drop on by! My talk is at 7:00 p.m.
