I will add a "me too." Jim continues to do excellent work.

The part on making useful observations (location, time, azimuth, elevation) was especially welcome.  I wish someone would make up a pocket card for doing that by remembering where you were, looking at the watch, noting landmarks, stretching out the arm and using the hand as an angular reference, etc. 

Or an app -- that shouldn't be too hard to do. My phone gets location down to a few meters, time to at least a second, has a compass and an inclinometer. Shouldn't be that hard to combine them into an observer app. I'd try to do that if I had appification skills, but, alas, I don't.
