Hi Tweeters,

Monday afternoon my wife and I saw "Flight of the Butterflies" at the IMAX
at the Pacific Science Center. It was amazing! Plus it is in 3-D, so the
butterflies seem to be flying right in front of you.

The movie, which is 45 minutes long, tells the story of Fred and Norah
Urquhart's search for the wintering grounds of the Monarch Butterfly. It
took them from 1937 to 1975 to discover it and only then with the help of a
large group of volunteers, including a couple in Mexico who actually made
the discovery.

My wife and I, along with friends Rob and Anne Radford from Aberdeen, saw
the Monarch Butterflies in the mountains above Zitacuaro, Michuacan, in
Dec. 2008. It was really spectacular. It was the highlight of a wonderful
trip to Mexico!

The movie is well worth the trip to the Seattle Center.
