If you miss a class meeting, in general, you will not have an opportunity to make up the work. If you wish to schedule a make-up, you must present me with a note explaining your absence, and signed by either your advisor or the chairman of your department. Without such a note, no make-up will be given.
If you have any special needs, you must inform me during the first week of classes. Otherwise, I may not be able to make arrangements in time to help you. Please contact me after class or at my office.
You may want to grab some extra observing report forms, in postscript or GIF format.

A good site for the information on the Moon is The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Moon.
