Dear Listees
Truckee, California, is not exactly a desert but where I am (about 6 miles east
of town on a bluff) at 6,000', the skies are remarkably clear. Last night, it
was easy to spot NEAT just 30 min past sunset. By darkness and with an
inredibly clear western horizon, it was an easy naked eye object. With binocs
it was quite attractive just below M47. The S&T guide that Paul and Jim
referred (and linked) to is very worthwhile in its (NEAT) location, especially
if your viewing conditions are less than ideal.
