Comet Catalina

The Moon was right next to Venus Monday morning.  In fact, the farther west you live, compared to Bonaire, the closer the Moon will be to Venus.  The Moon will pass right in front of Venus around mid day as seen from the west coast of the USA.  You can read all about it here.

Comet Catalina is lurking nearby too.  These shots show the Moon, Venus and Comet Catalina.  The comet is a faint greenish fuzz.  You'll probably need to click on the thumbnails to see the full size images.  The upper image is a one second exposure.  The low image is a two second exposure.

Animal Shelter Annual Christmas Sale

The Bonaire Animal Shelter, or Dierenasiel, had its annual December sale and flea market this past Sunday.  There was music, food, and many bargains to be found; but funny enough, I didn't see any fleas.
Good thing Sandra wasn't with me or we probably would have come home with a puppy!

Reception Reports from Far Off Lands

We received a reception report from a listener in Finland early last month.  He heard the Spanish language program, Mujeres de Esperanza, and sent us an mp3 recording of Annabel doing a Station ID at 1 am, Bonaire time.

Later in November we received a report from Jose, in Garciasville, Texas.  He heard La Voz Alegre at 9 pm, Bonaire time.

Here is a look at the post card Per-Ole sent us from Finland.
