    Mystic: resources photos links
    From: Frank Reed
    Date: 2008 Jul 01, 16:25 -0400

    There are some additions to the "post-event" section on the web page for the
    Navigation Weekend (last month at Mystic Seaport):
      http://www.fer3.com/Mystic2008
    
    There is now a large collection of photos, some taken by me, many by Stan
    Klein. They're uncaptioned for now. On the resources page, there are links
    to Celestaire, the SEA, the Mystic Seaport digital collection (many old
    logbooks!) and two other interesting items:
    1) a link to a video entitled "A Private Universe" in which you get to see
    recent Harvard grads explaining the causes of the seasons and getting it
    completely wrong. Draw your own conclusion (I think there are many possible
    explanations).
    2) a link to an analysis by Dave Walden about clearing lunars using
    Bennett's tables where he worked out the statistical details. The results
    are certainly better than I would have expected but naturally not as good as
    you can get with purpose-built tables.
