2-24-08 Stellar Life Cycle Street Astro
Our 3 week blast of winter has abated for a while.....time to get out and do some street astronomy - besides personal observing! I have really looked forward to doing a series of sessions on the Stellar Life Cycle because it is all displayed out there for us to see and ponder right now with our fabulous winter skies! Orion's Star Factory, Star Clusters, Stellar Giants and picturesque Binaries, Taurus's Crab Nebula and Pleaides, Gemini's middle age Star Clusters and the Eskimo Planetary. So much to show the public and capture their imagination with. Sandra and Salvador saw it all! Sandra had some astronomy in her primary school overseas, but it never really connected with her - now she had the opportunity to see it for herself. What a difference to really see this stuff and connect with the universe in a personal way.
