back to France

I just made a reservation for this evening, Thursday 22
from 22 PM. We can meet at 22h30. Please consider
I can NOT wait for "to be late" people at the main entrance
because we have to walk about 10' to the roof ...

I don't know now if it will be validated but it should.

Please transfer me *in private* *before 15h* the list
(location/entry is :
77 Avenue Denfert Rochereau, paris 14ieme, metro Station Denfert,
lines 4 and 6 and RER B. About 20 minutes walking distance from
Place d'Italie)
No working cellular now, I will send phone number(s) later.

I realize despite being after full the Moon may be a target
(not fully sure because it is more tricky to use this instrument
in the East direction. I am afraid Saturn is too low in West
at we are too late) I can not guaranty the observations
will be successful : old historic instrument (150 years old)
We also dependent on the weather, especially the high
altitude clouds we have today :(

On my side, I not sure to be able to be free tomorrow evening (Friday)
and even more difficult to be free on Saturday evening.

If we start at 22h30 and we are about 15
you should be "free" before midnight. You cannot
leave the group before all of us go back.
I don't know in detail last metro/RER but
it should be half an hour left, we have Velib stations around,
and it you hotels are not far from Place d'Italie
it is in walking distance.

Yes it is free.

I hope I forgot nothing.

best regards
