I'd like to second this suggestion, both as a tribute to those composers who've kept on looking up, and to Mr. Levy. With the Shoemakers, he introduced us to one of the most dramatic events ever witnessed by humans. Bravo to all!

I have a suggestion for your absolutely superb program, which I listen to regularly over the web. How about a theme relating to music and the night sky. It could include music written specifiicallyt for night sky events, like the many pieces composed by William Herschel, who discovered the planet Uranus in 1781, or music that oithers have interpreted in that way. Beethoven's Moonlight, or even his first symphony, which The SHoemnakers and I were listening to when we discovcered Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9, whiich crashed into Jupiter in 1994. Sincerely, David H. Levy
