I've been absent for a while now, hard at work on my short. I am exporting the final version of it as I type this, so hopefully I'll have it posted tomorrow or Monday.
Last night Deanna and I went to the observatory at the Maryland Science Center at Inner Harbor. On clear Friday evenings they have free, guided access to their observatory. We were there for maybe half an hour and were able to see Saturn, Mars, the moon, as well as some selected stars. It was really beautiful.
