Please be sure to sign our guest book at the bottom of the page and tell us what you think about our Web Page.
July 25, 2002 - Sorry for all the delays in getting this page updated - there has been a lot going on for all of us. I have been doing a lot of traveling, which has become more difficult with the increased security (but I am not complaining about that). We have moved Cub-Roundtable.Com to new a web servers. In addition to moving to a new server, I am also using a new webpage authoring program, so I am also trying to learn a the program as well. The monthly links are not working yet, but hopefully will be working by this weekend. It may take a while to get everything to work right with the new program and the new servers, but please bear with me as I get the page back on-line. I appreciate all the support from everyone who visits the page and finds it useful. Please let me know if you have any problems with using this page by sending an EMail to email@example.com.

Fun Things to Try:
There are a number of man-made objects that are visible in the night sky if you just know where to look for them. The NASA Web-site has two tools that will help you locate the path of the Shuttles, the MIR space station, and numerous satellites. The first tool is called J-Track Satellite Tracking and it can be found by clicking here. J-Track is a real-time tool that shows a map of the world and the current location of major orbital vehicles. The second tool is a bit more complicated and takes longer to load - it is called J-Pass Satellite passes and can be found by clicking here. J-Pass allows you to put in your location and it will show the paths and times of the more visible satellites that will pass over your location. Give these a try, amaze the kids, and have fun.
