Baja Night Sky This Week: Courtesy Baja Pony Express - There will be great views of the moon, 5 planets, some of the brightest stars in the sky, and several satellite flares this week.

The constellation Orion still dominates the high southern sky from 7pm to 10pm and later. It contains 7 of the 100 brightest stars in the sky. When you look through binoculars at the green hazy cloud or nebula in the sword hanging just below the 3 bright stars in the belt, you are watching a star factory that contains some of the hottest stars known.

Of the 200,000,000,000 stars in our Milky Way Galaxy, you can only see about 2000 of them on a clear night. Stay up all night and you will see about 4000 of the 6000 we see from Earth during the course of one year. The brightest star, Sirius, is just below Orion.

This may be your last chance to find the second brightest star, Canopus, below and to the right of Sirius about 3 and 1/2 fists. Once you head for home back north, Canopus will fall below the horizon for most viewers. Can you imagine what Orion would look like if you crossed the equator and looked back to the north to find the constellation? It would appear a little different--upside down.

Wednesday: Soon after sunset look for the crescent moon low in the west. With binoculars try to find Mercury just to its south. At 7:35:33pm there will be a satellite flare over the mid to north end of Cerralvo about halfway up to the zenith.

Thursday: There is a brighter flare tonight at 7:29:26pm at the same spot, and another on Friday at 7:23:20pm. This last one will be very bright in Los Barriles at 7:23:11pm.

Saturday: The crescent moon will be just above Venus.

Sunday: The waxing crescent moon will be just to the right of Jupiter. All week reddish Mars will be up in the east by 9pm, and Saturn will rise around 10pm. - The Baja Western Onion

Stepping Out - Food, Music, Workshops and Entertainment

Out With The Old, In With The New – Desertu Welcomes You! - For those of you who have been waiting for Chef José Uribe & his wife Carmen to make Il Giardino their own ... well, the time has come! "Il Giardino" is no more, it is now "Desertu," and José & Carmen are eager to share their fresh unique menu with you.

Pizza lovers do not despair! The popular pizza menu is in place but with improved recipes and quality of ingredients in the ever lovely garden setting. All pizzas are now available at the same reduced cost of 185 pesos for one of those enormous pies. And if you mention this ad with your pizza order, they’ll throw-in two beers or sodas for free!

As for the savory new menu – although José inherently sees food preparation through the lens of his Basque country origin, and he & Carmen hail from Mexico City where José worked as executive chef at two highly acclaimed restaurants which received 4 consecutive 5 Star Diamond awards under his stewardship – Desertu is decidedly about a multicultural, global and simple approach to cuisine. A versatile and contemporary menu that focuses on fresh, local meats and seafood, simply but artfully prepared, with just a few ingredients to enhance the main component of the dish.

Think ... fresh clams a la Marinara, beef filet with Gorgonzola, whole grilled fish with twice-cooked garlic, risotto with saffron and mussels. You get the idea...scrumptious! Their new standard menu is augmented daily with unique and interesting seasonal specials, a great new grill, a thoughtful wine list and creative delectable desserts.

Desertu is a whole new mouthful of flavor for this town; sure to surprise and delight your palate. But, taste for yourself, open daily from 1pm-10pm, closed Wednesday; José & Carmen welcome you and hope to see you at Desertu soon! - Desertu, rdesertu [- at -] gmail.com, 145-0199, Todos Santos

Flying Fido And Morris Into Mexico, Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Useful Article from Baja Insider 12/12/11: (1) You will need a Original Health Certificate completed by a Vet,. The documentation should verify that the dog has received all its shots. Do Not Try To Use A Photocopy. Rabies Shot not over 1 year old. (yes in the states it is 3 years but not Mexico Upon arriving at the airport, after clearing customs you will need to import the dog. This is pretty painless. They take your health certificate back to the office photocopy it and bring you the import papers with an official stamp. Hope that helps. Jim Hall

Mexico recently changed the rabies policy. We flew into SJD In October and were asked to present health certificates for our dog and cat. They registered the animals and presented me with papers welcoming them into Mexico. The person who helped us also told me that the policy for rabies had changed in Mexico from a shot each year had changed to a shot every three years, just like in the USA.
