Packing our bags for road trip in search of Zodiacal light; Viewing of SpaceX launch site in Boca Chica; Review of viral evolution and example of tracking the spread of SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern

 Greetings from Palmia Observatory

Well here we are packing our bags for our road trip in search of the Zodiacal light in the dark skies around Needles, CA., and at the same time unpack our backs for the September cruise from Romania, in search of vampires, up the Dneiper River, from Odessa, to Kiev, Ukraine, which has been canceled, but in the meantime we can report on observing opportunities in Boca Chica and look into some science of viral mutations and variants of concern.
