Wood Enterprises Let the Truth be Known – Travis Walton

( Comment I always liked Walton for his sincerity ) I personally believe his story.

July 2010

Wood Enterprises is proud to encourage knowledge and truth about the UFO phenomenon. Over the years we have met many people whose stories need to be told. As a courtesy to the public and out of respect for the individuals who put themselves out there, we have often shared announcements from authors, producers, and the like who we feel have a real impact on disclosure.

Fire In the Sky, Newly Revised with Additional Data
Message to the Public

by Travis Walton
Most realize that Hollywood did not stick with the real story. They wanted to get the book to find out the details of what really happened. But it was out of print all those years, while I received almost daily inquiries from all over the world asking where they could find a copy. People were selling their used copies online for outrageous amounts — up to $200 to $300. But I have finally finished printing a newly updated edition. It has revisions and additional illustrations and 25 more pages of material. It is a 6×9 softcover using a higher quality whiter paper and a clearer font and format.

For now it’s only available here. To order send a money order for $30 plus $5.95 shipping and handling for US orders (Shipping and handling is free on the second book on two-book orders within the U.S., in other words shipping and handling is still $5.95 for two-book orders)Shipping and handling is $15 for Europe & Australia, $11 for Canada & Mexico.

Please include a note saying how you wish it autographed (free), to Travis Walton PO Box 1072 Snowflake, AZ 85937.

Check www.travis-walton.com for upcoming media coverage and personal appearances. You could save the shipping by getting it from me in person

More About Fire In the Sky
Excerpts from the Official Website

On November 5, 1975, a group of loggers in the mountains of northeastern Arizona observed a strange, unusually bright light in the sky. One of those men, Travis Walton, recklessly left the safety of their truck to take a closer look. Suddenly, as he walked toward the light, Walton was blasted back by a bolt of mysterious energy.

His Companions fled in fear. When they reported an encounter with a UFO – something they would have considered impossible if they had not witnessed it themselves – the men were suspected of murder. For five days authorities mounted a massive manhunt in search of Walton – or his body. Then Walton reappeared, disoriented and initially unable to tell the whole story of his terrifying encounter.

In Fire in the Sky Travis Walton relates in his own words the best documented account of alien abduction yet recorded, the story of his harrowing ordeal at the hands of silent captors and his return to a disbelieving world of hostile interrogators, exploitative press and self-styled “debunkers.” Travis recounts the struggle to get a fair hearing, and confronts his detractors with a stinging rebuttal.

Now, the real story behind the hit movie from Paramount – a detailed expose of the campaign to suppress Walton’s story, and first-time revelations of startling new developments. 396 pp.

The Ahau Chronicles Volume 10 July 7, 2010 J. Turner

Preparations for the Apocalypse Island 2010 Eclipse Expedition are currently
underway. In the introductory email to the last newsletter I announced that the
expedition would not take place due to a lack of funding. After grappling with that
disappointment I realized that I had raised just enough money for the cost of airfare
alone. In a reckless leap of faith I decided that this was an historic opportunity too
important to miss, so I booked the flights and hoped for the best. In a stroke of luck of
cosmic proportions, History Channel aired the Apocalypse Island movie twice on Friday
night, July 25th. In anticipation, I retooled my website home page and added a PayPal
donation button to canvas additional support for the expedition. You can imagine my
stunned surprise when Joe from Las Vegas came through Saturday morning with a pledge
of $10,000! I have been able to dial down my stress, equip myself for the expedition, and
make the final preparations for departure. Many thanks are also in order to my other
supporters who have donated to the cause as well. The adventure continues….
The first leg of the
journey will take me from JFK
airport in New York to Santiago,
Chile on an overnight flight. My
friend Pedro Niada, recently
displaced to Santiago from
Robinson Crusoe Island after the
February tsunami destroyed his
island hostel, will fetch me from
the airport on Sunday, July 4th.
Though we only have a day
together before my flight to the
island, I want to interview him
about his experience surviving the
tsunami with his wife and two
young children. They barely
escaped with their lives but still
dream of returning to the island to
rebuild. Sunday night will be
spent at Pedro’s followed by an
early morning trip the next day to
Tobalaba airfield for the flight to
the island. Pedro was able to
secure for me the last remaining
seat on the plane. I will land on
the island early in the afternoon
and take a boat from the airstrip
to the village where I will spend
the night at Pedro’s old cabin.
Landing at the main dock will be a painful ordeal as I am confronted with the
utter destruction of everything I remember about my beloved island village. While much
of the debris has been cleaned up, the empty landscape will seem surreal, as if it had been
simply wiped clean. Gone is the school, the administrative buildings, the fisherman’s
shacks and all the beautiful hand-built houses that once lined the waterfront. Pedro’s old
cabin sits high above El Palillo, the campground at the far end of the bay where I spent
my first month on the island. I expect my old campsite has also been washed into the sea.
Tuesday, July 6th will be my first full day on the island. I intend to spend the
morning filming the ruined village as well as visiting the old Spanish fort. In front of this
fort, constructed in AD 1750, archeologists recovered charcoal from a depth of 4 feet
below the ground surface. Radiocarbon dating proved that the charcoal was about 1,300
years old, putting it within the Classic era of the kings of Palenque whom I suspect
constructed the monument on the other side of the island. Since the charcoal was not
found in direct association with cultural artifacts the archeologists dismissed it as the
result of a natural occurring forest fire. However, given that their investigation of this
location consisted of only two 1meter-x-1meter excavation pits spaced at a wide interval,
it seems possible that they could have easily missed the cultural material and artifacts that
would have proven a pre-Columbian occupation of the island.
Later in the afternoon on Tuesday I will gear up and begin the long hike over the
volcanic ridge to the other side of the island. Since it is winter in the Southern
Hemisphere the sun will set shortly after 6pm and I will need to be near my camp before
nightfall. My intention is to try to get as close to the monument as possible so that on
Wednesday, the sacred 1 Ahau date of the Mayan tzolkin, I will be able to spend my first
full day at the monument.
The intention of this expedition, besides observing the eclipse, is to explore the
vicinity of the monument and look for some convincing evidence that it is a man-made
structure and not some elaborately impossible cosmically aligned natural rock formation.
One of the more obvious locations for exploration will be in the debris field located along
the southern side of the monument, shown in the bottom right corner of the photo above.
This debris field creates a level half-acre terrace in a landscape otherwise consisting of
steep slopes. The debris field is made up of small rubble likely from the sculpting of the
monument and was observed last year to have partly eroded away exposing deeper layers.
The debris field will be my base camp for the following days while I film, explore
and wait for the eclipse (I can already see where I will hang my hammock!). As part of
my eclipse photography I will be using a custom modified infrared digital camera in an
effort to capture evidence of the ley lines or telluric energy which I discussed in the last
newsletter. In less than two hours I was able to hack a cheap digital camera and convert
it to infrared. Find out how at: http://geektechnique.org/index.php?id=254. The camera
now shows the IR beam from a remote control and the security feature of the new $5 bill.
The next newsletters will detail the results of the Eclipse Expedition and the
discoveries I expect to make. For those of you who are interested in a more complete
report of the expedition I would recommend ordering a copy of the forthcoming movie
from my website. I’m looking forward to a most excellent adventure and a safe
homecoming, laden with the treasure of sacred wisdom bequeathed by the ancient Maya.


“The Board”: an instrument into the Otherworld or vehicle to the Void? – Part 1 Is it all True Series #143

Sometimes on a Friday night as I get ready to write an article on something UFO/Paranormal I have a bit of an old brain fart. But luckily that doesn’t last long, for I ask the cosmos for some direction and it has me push random words into the Google search bar. And guess what, interesting stuff comes up and it awakens my frozen neurons. This week is the favorite big mystery item called “the board” – the Ouija or the Ouija board – whatever you like to call it.

First a little “board” history. It was born surprising here in the USA, not in some dark castle in old Europe. In the 1870’s a carpenter named E.C. Reich built the first wooden “board”. But I believe its first conceptional appearance could have been back as far as the early Egyptians. Then around and about 1886, E.C. sold his concept and his board to two guys named Kennard and Maupin and they started marketing the Ouija. Next a Mr. Bill Fuld bought the business and he and his brother made lots of money over the next 35 years with their Ouija board business. Interestingly, Fuld may have committed suicide at the age of 57. The board, or a jealous close relative? Only the “board” knows. Then in 1942 the Fuld family sold the board to the game giant Parker Brothers who still own the rights.

So over the last 140 years people all over the world have been playing with this vehicle.
And I believe 90% of the time no harm comes to the participants. Now the 10%, which many would debate is a very high number, but I say yes, it is one of the dangers; a 10% chance of getting your mind screwed into another world with no way back is something to note. So the more you play it, the more the roulette wheel turns and the closer to the void you come. Another issue is it is quite addictive, the thrill of the unknown and the possible glimpse of a spirit will keep you coming back.

So what is happening here? Well I believe several things: one, as we play with the board we ask questions of the entities who lie normally at a safe distance from us in their world plane. By asking questions we are inviting them in to our world and they love to visit. That would not be so bad but they like to take bits of stuff back with them. Some of the stuff they take are memories from the most vulnerable players of the game. And who are the most vulnerable ones? They are the ones with the most fear in their hearts and minds.
Also a law between worlds is that you must balance out the worlds and leave something behind in the world you take from. So normal human memories are taken and replaced by non-human thoughts. I’m talking about looking into the void, a very dark void at that.

People whose minds are filled with fear are in danger of losing a bit of their sanity if they play with the board – “ the Board will play you.”

Next week I will continue with more on “the Board” from my personal experiences and those of other reliable sources.

And here I am telling you about the dangers of “the board” as I get ready to go into the other world through vortex photography on a trip east of Albuquerque high in the mountains.

Sleep tight and remember – no fear will make you even with the board.


Sister Wolf Speaks —-Women of the West History Trail

The Socorro women’s history trail project chose to include the El Camino Real Legacy Trail as part of our research area. We have expanded outside Socorro County for our stories about Native American women because the original pueblos Indians who lived in our country are gone. As a consequence of isolation from other continents. 80% and 90% of Native Americans died from illness introduced by Europeans. Many original tribes in the Americas died out entirely after Europeans contact. For example, all the Piros, pueblo Indians who inhabited the Socorro area, are gone. Some fled South with the Spanish in 1680, some mixed there with other Indian groups. But many had already died of disease, of the original approximately two hundred pueblos in New Mexico, only nineteen pueblos remain today…
The Women of the West , Museum , now affiliated with the Gene Autry , Museum in Los angeles, California, is dedicated to inspiring people everywhere, by revealing a richer and broader , American experience, shared and shaped by women of courage, imagination, and resourcefulness. The Women’s History Trail Project is a major education initiative to make women’s stories more visible in the history and landscape of the American West…

CONSCIOUSLY CREATE UNITY July 17 & 18 Newsletter from Generessa Rose

Dear Friends,

If you have attended one of my presentations or watched my DVD
*Getting Personal with the Matrix of Everything,* you would have
learned that my shamanic journeys into the quantum realm prove that
the Matrix of Everything is conscious and is continually being
impregnated with your intentions, expectations & assumptions.

In my experience, this Matrix is an enthusiastic partner in
manifesting your intentions – – Creation LOVES to serve you! During
my shamanic journeys, it was also clear why and how the unified
consciousness and intention of multiple people is so powerful. The
more people who collaborate, coordinate and send the SAME INTENTION
into the Matrix of Everything, the greater is the impact upon the
Matrix and the greater is the power to set things into motion and
create what is intended.

July 17 & 18 offer us an event to use the power of our collective
consciousness: the Conscious Convergence, sponsored by the Global
Consciousness Project. It has been organized with the intention of
creating unity and global peace.

The Mission Statement from Conscious Convergence states: The Conscious
Convergence mission is to bring people together with the shared
intention of cultivating a critical mass of harmonious energy that
supports inner and outer reconciliation. We come together in the
spirit of unity to heal wounds that separate us, to reconcile
conflicts that divide us, to inspire ideas and actions that express
our oneness, and to join together in heart and mind to welcome the
birth of our new world.

The Shared Intention Agreement states: I, as a sovereign being, join
together with All That Is to call forth the presence of balance and
unity within me and in our world. I am the conscious presence of
harmony and reconciliation, and I am grateful for the wholeness I
bring forth in this and every moment. And so it is.

For both your personal world and the global world, you have an
opportunity to support the transcendence of old destructive paradigms
and to BOOST THE POWER and effectiveness of our shared intentions.

What to do? This weekend, join together, in groups or remotely, and
ride a wave of intention, consciousness & energy to personally and
globally create UNITY, HARMONY and PEACE. ENVISION and celebrate the
life and world you want!

Is it worth taking some time to do this on your weekend?

Be peace. Be harmony. Be grateful. Be joy. Be the love you are.

In unity and with gratitude,

Generessa Rose

Sharon Cheney Speaks from Santa Fe – July

Her July Newsletter —

Dear Friends,
I want to wish all Canadians and Americans a happy and safe holiday week-end. This is a time to celebrate the freedom and blessings both countries offer their citizens.
Creating a New Reality

Many times I hear from clients that they want something new but they immediately assume that the future will look exactly as their past. If they have been hurt in past relationships or have experienced losses, they always believe it will happen to them again. A friend recently sent me this email message. I invite you to read it and take a moment to really think about it.

“To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did. When God takes something from your grasp, He’s not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.”

I strongly believe this to be true. It is our job to open our hearts and allow something or someone new into our lives. Surely everyone must realize we are at a point of immense change on this planet where we are either going to make it or not. There is no going back. So you can choose to hold onto the past as if your life depended on it or you can open yourself to the future and use your God given abilities to create the reality you really want. The choice is yours.

Here is something else to contemplate. “There comes a point in your life when you realize who really matters and who never did. Who won’t anymore and who always will. So don’t worry about people from your past. There’s a reason why they didn’t make it to your future.”

Many people want things to stay the same because they don’t want to chance losing their jobs, relationships or any other securities they believe they have. Holding onto the past is a losing battle because the past is over and things are changing very quickly now. We have no choice but to let go and move forward with ease rather than resistance.

The world is in bad shape, just read the news. With each wave of higher energy such as we experienced in May and June, it becomes apparent that we need to do something different. We are at a pivotal point and we all have a choice in what is going to happen. We have the power to create the future we would like both personally and globally instead of leaving it up to others to make decisions for us.

We all have the power to create miracles as we are all God-like beings. Unfortunately many of us are not using our powers of manifestation. We don’t understand how reality gets created. To help you understand this, I am including an excerpt from my book “Your Soul: The Roadmap to Your Life” on how reality is created.

“We are all spiritual beings and we create our reality one hundred percent of the time. If we wish to live in ignorance of this fact then we create a reality that does not include soul awareness. The advantage of being aware of our true nature is that we can create the reality we want. Otherwise, we create unconsciously and must live with the reality others created. This can lead to feeling like victims of life instead of the powerful creators we really are.

The reality we experience is shaped by the beliefs of those who live on this planet. Reality is not fixed but shifts as our personal thoughts and those of others change. Reality is a multilayered creation and no two people have the same reality. Our thoughts shape the energy that flows through us and creates the personal reality we experience, as well as the reality of those around us.

Reality is a function of our consciousness and therefore no matter what the situation, it can only be changed by our consciousness. When we realize we have the ability to create our reality, we recognize how powerful we are. Unfortunately, most people don’t realize they have this kind of power, and if they do, they are not using it to change their lives.

The frequency of the energy that flows through our bodies is determined by our thoughts. Therefore our thoughts create our reality. For example, positive minded people tend to look on the bright side and try to see the good in any situation rather than think of worse-case scenarios. Negative people tend to subscribe to “what if” thinking, which is fear-based and focuses on what could go wrong. This serves to increase their fear and anxiety about how they will cope should these unwanted possibilities manifest. What they fail to realize is that their very thoughts are attracting these negative scenarios into their lives.

All thoughts are made of energy and look like sound waves. Positive thoughts have a faster frequency and higher amplitude, while negative thoughts have a slower frequency and smaller amplitude. When we think positively, high frequency energy flows through us and raises our consciousness. When we think negatively, lower frequency energy flows through our bodies and depletes our energy and decreases our conscious awareness.

When we take responsibility for creating both our personal and global reality, we realize that we have chosen the life we have and how we experience it. Our family members, teachers, religion, friends, and environment may influence us, but in the end, we chose the reality we want to see.

We chose to either face our issues or blame others for our misfortunes. We choose to either find solutions to our problems or decide nothing can ever change. In order to evolve and have what we want, we must take responsibility for what we are creating and harness our tremendous power as creators. Only when we do this can we feel powerful.

We must understand that when we create our reality, we must make responsible choices that will benefit all sentient beings everywhere, and not just what is good for ourselves. I have always admired the way that Native Americans address problem solving. When they consider a solution, they look at how their decision is going to affect seven generations hence. If every time we made a decision, we considered how our actions would affect not only our future, but the future of humanity and the next seven generations, I am sure we would be living in a better world.

Victims are people who do not take responsibility for what they have created for themselves. Either they believe they have no power or the power to create change lies outside of themselves. Typically these people give away their power to professionals or others they believe to be more knowledgeable or powerful than they are. They allow others to make decisions for them because they believe that others know what’s better for them than they do. When they hold this belief and refuse to take responsibility for what they create, they allow others to run their lives and then they feel like victims when they don’t like the choices others make.

The combination of putting our trust in “experts” and our increasing reliance on technology has made us feel powerless, in spite of the amazing things technology allows us to do. The technology that allows us to manipulate nature only reinforces the false belief that nature is something separate from us, something we need to control and dominate. The real truth is that we are creating the reality of nature. When we see the polluted state the planet is in, we think the solution is more technology which only leads to the relinquishment of our power, instead of creating a reality of a pollution free planet.

The truth is that technology can sometimes have disastrous results. Many hundreds of thousands of people suffer and die from drugs we believe to be therapeutic. When we believe technology can achieve the desired results, we neglect to search inside ourselves for the means to achieve the same ends. Every gain in technology is a loss of internal power. We could produce the same results as technology if we would only use our full power to create the reality of perfect health or an unpolluted world.

Another way we give away our power is by electing political officials. When we elect officials, we surrender our right to evaluate and make our own decisions to governmental agencies, religious teachers, and the media. By choosing others to make our decisions, we have chosen a reality in which we see ourselves as powerless, especially if those we elect make decisions we don’t approve of.

We have been conditioned to believe that in order to fit in and be accepted, our feelings, thoughts, and behaviors should be determined by the rules, interests, and images that lie outside of ourselves. Surrendering our authority to others corresponds with the reality we have created and the dimensional level we live on. This is not who we truly are but we have become so susceptible to manipulation that we doubt our ability to decide for ourselves what is right and wrong.

Even though beneficial energy permeates all space, we do not always make good use of this energy. Negative thinking, depression, fear, and bad habits act like a repellent because of the law of attraction. On the other hand, thinking positively, doing good deeds, and expressing love, good will, and joy towards others allows this energy to flow through us. When this positive energy flows through us, we are able to access the higher realms and expand our consciousness. This contact changes us over time and helps our souls to evolve.

We can create a magnetic effect by putting positive energy around a vision or thought we would like to manifest. The positive energy of our thought or visualization acts like a magnet to attract what we desire. Let’s say you wish for more prosperity and love in your life, then imagine yourself to be a large horseshoe shaped magnet attracting love and prosperity. The more positive energy you attach to this desire, the more quickly you will manifest it. Be sure you are clear on what it is you want to create because this really works.

When you want to create perfect health repeatedly say, “I intend to be in perfect health”. When you start creating in this manner, this energy accumulates and gets transmitted to the brain, nervous system and eventually to all the cells of the body. If the energy of the thought is strong enough, a magnetic field of energy follows the direction of the thought and creates an amplified current for improvement in your health. You can also use the energy of your will to create your reality or change conditions on the planet.”

We all live in an energy field that not only surrounds us personally but globally. We all have the capacity to influence that field through our thoughts. We need to revision our lives and life on this planet. We must change from a mode of personal survival to one of planetary health. So envision harmony among all peoples, a willingness to share Earth’s resources, a healthy planet with no pollution, ever lasting world peace, an inability of big corporations to control our lives and rape the earth of resources to fatten the bottom line, and so on. The time has come and we must act quickly if we are going to survive on this planet.

Is the Experiment here on Earth coming to an End? -Is it all True Series #142

I have from time to time been inspired to write about a Grand Cosmic Experiment, which is being carried out, by some non-human entities or maybe hybrids. It, if you have not noticed, it truly feeling like life on earth is now like a vehicle moving at 90 mph and all the wheels are coming off. We are spinning out of control. Never in my lifetime has it felt this way. Global Economic collapse, monster oil spill in the gulf, America in two wars, one of the most hostile periods in man’s history and let’s not forget global climate change.

And if that is not all enough for the world to edge towards its tipping point, consider this: the entities that have been here trying to keep the wheels on the human cart, may be walking away, back into their inter-dimensional world.

They (these beings) have been here for thousands of years, in the form of angels, grays, reptilians, people of the Fey, many types people worship and many other pure energy beings. And guess what, they have been here helping keep the lid on our world, admittedly never ever peace and prosperity for all, but never has man and all the creatures here faced such incredible challenges. I believe that the only reason it is getting so strange here is because these mostly invisible helpers are leaving us. Their experiment here is coming to an end, exactly why I do not know. Maybe after thousands years of trying to change us, modify us, make us more like them, more peaceful, happier, and more intelligent, they failed.
We have been a Cosmic Experiment seeded on this planet to make the perfect emotional, physical and spiritual being. Maybe we have become too complex. So they (the handlers) are going to let us face Mother Earth and she will do what she does best –recycle.

Now in closing let me say I am probably all wet, all wrong, but one of two things will be coming shortly: total disclosure about our handlers’ existence and their purpose and the other option- things are going to get much, much worse and we will then know we were abandoned.

So no fear, but please, if you see a group inter-dimensional beings walking down the street, all is well on this crazy planet, and if you don’t see them – mediate, pray and maybe it’s not too late.

Sleep tight – having no fear – is the ultimate freedom.


AS they slide back into the other world.
An actual photo shot in the Everglades By MWiz April 2010

Jim Turner answering questions– about Apocalypse Island

The Question—

Hello Jim and MWiz, I recently watched the televised program on Isla de Robinson Crusoe or “Apocalypse Island”. Is the location of this possible monument the only place these cosmic events of 2012 will be visible anywhere on earth? Also, why would the Mayans go to such lengths to carve such an important landmark using unfamiliar materials and risk the destruction of such an important monument? By looking at the pictures on your website I fail to see any resemblance to a jaguar or Mayan sun god. I am looking forward to your reply

The Answers—-

Hi xxxx

You can go to my website (www.apocalypseisland.com) and visit the photo gallery for additional photos of the monument. The movie did not do it justice and it is understandable that you would be disappointed. In the Photo Gallery is an overlay showing the Mayan Sun God image over the monument. The Maya used the material on hand because, at double the size of the Egyptian Sphinx, it was an arduous task to carve. They stripped away the exterior of the volcanic ridge, likely exposing harder material underneath. As rock made from cooled lava it was strong enough to survive this long. I am leaving on Saturday for another expedition to the island monument, this time to film the Solar Eclipse of July 11. I intend to spend much time photographing the monument from all angles. You can pre-order a copy of the expedition DVD from my website. Thanks for your interest. Cheers, Jim


Don’t you hate when you email someone with questions and they just don’t answer them? Sorry but I forgot to talk about the visibility of the 2012 cosmic events. The Transit of Venus will be visible over a large swath of the earth and will be observed for only moments before sunset as seen from the island monument. However, horizon viewing was apparently preferred by the ancients, perhaps because the sun is passing through a thicker cross-section of atmosphere and therefore easier to look at with the unprotected eye. The November 13, 2012 total solar eclipse is visible in the Western Hemisphere only from the Juan Fernandez Archipelago, the islands of Alexander Selkirk and Robinson Crusoe. In truth, the 2012 eclipse is only 90% eclipsed as seen from the island monument since the eclipse path passes to the north of the island. Some may find this cause to dismiss the entire thing because the eclipse is not total but when you consider the sophistication of the science involved in the prediction and the inability of the Maya to reformat the cosmos for their celestial mythology you have to cut them some slack. Another interpretation might suggest that, since the eclipse path ends precisely on the 80th line of longitude, that we are simply misunderstanding the intention of the Maya and that the true import of this mystery transcends a single celestial event (ie. the 2012 eclipse). As defined by NASA’s calculations the central line of the 2012 eclipse ends at 79 degrees 58.2 minutes West of Greenwich, a mere 1.8 SECONDS of longitude away from the 80th meridian. For the importance of this meridian I would direct you to Volume 3 of The Ahau Chronicles where I detail the sacred cartography involved with this line. As a discrete marking of time I feel the Maya have come as close as heavenly possible to accurately measuring the orbit of our planet around the sun. See the attached animation for another perspective. Hopefully that answers your questions. Now I have to go and pack for the expedition. Cheers, Jim

Annoucement from Sister Wolf — For her Event

TIME 10:00 AM TO 6:00 PM FRIDAY SEPT-3-2010
