The Chicago Astronomer provides free interactive information through regular newsletter emails and via forum/bulletin board on Chicago area astronomical events.
Many feel astronomy is prohibitive in Chicago's light polluted skies, but many objects and events can be easily observed if you know where and when to look.
The Chicago Astronomer often sets up telescopic equipment by the Adler Planetarium on clear evenings, sharing views and discussing astronomy with the public. Views of Saturn's rings, the craters of the moon and the bands of Jupiter always bring gasps of excitement from first time viewers.
If you are interested in joining the ranks of amateur astronomers, seeking more information or just wondered about the night skies, please contact the Chicago Astronomer at: email@example.com, or stop by the forum at: http://astronomer.proboards23.com/.
Thank you, and Dark skies

Since the first incident in 1967 some ten to twenty thousand domestic cattle have been found dead and mutilated, mainly in the United States. The animals have been found in fields with certain organs removed, cut open by a very sharp instrument or by laser. A rigorous investigation [JS90 p. 169-289] leads one to believe that the removal of the organs has taken place after the animal has been abducted by air: there are no traces of a struggle or of blood on the ground, animals are found in places inaccessible on foot, etc.
