I was bored and looked in our library collections for moon hoax books. Well guess what came up? Bad Astronomy. :-D It seems that my university does have a great head on its shoulders. :-)

The University of Georgia library (where I work) also has the book.
In fact, according to WorldCat, 1096 libraries own the book. Way to go, Phil! =D>


One library, Flathead Valley Community College Library, seems to own a VHS of it. Theres a VHS of it? Here is the information about it, according to WorldCat....

Now that the BA is back from his trip, I'm bumping this to hopefully get an answer. I'm suspecting its a typo, but I want him to know in case he needs to contact them. :D

Michael Shermer of the Skeptics Society (http://www.skeptic.com) invited me to give my Moon Hoax talk in LA a couple of years ago. I assume that's what they have. His HQ is in Altadena, so that fits. I assume that's what it is.

I'd actually like to see it; in the Q&A I was confronted by an HB. But that's another story...
