Back from the Southern Hemisphere with only clouds in the night sky; Upgrading the microscope in the search for living Water Bears

 Greetings from Palmia Observatory,

Well, we are back from our cruise adventure to the Southern Hemisphere with ports of call in New Zealand and Australia with an add on adventure into the outback of Australia.  We were also lucky in travelling with old friends, OC Astronomers and Radio Hams, Marty and Bonnie.

Anyway, we are late in wishing everyone a happy new year.  So, Happy New Year everyone!  There was a lot of celebration aboard the ship, but we were tired out and missed actual new year's by about 3 hours.
