I guess "Down By The Bay" is around town. Love those elliptical orbits. This is a great 'citizen science' opportunity. Like birding for a wildlife census or meteor counting/photographing for a comet remnant study (NASA Ames). Note the difference in times between Berkley - and Palo Alto - it takes a while for those zillions of gallons of seawater to gush through the Golden Gate and slosh down South to us.
