3-19-09 Planets Coming and Going Street Astro

What a perfect time to do a Solar System program with 2 dominate worlds on either horizon, and our own world firmly ensconced under our feet! The possibilities are endless topic and question wise and open up great discussion with my guests - everyone enjoys planets! The Niles clan was in the right place at the right time. They are a Scouting family with daughter Lyndsie is being exposed to astronomy at this time in her classroom. After sharing WOW views of Saturn and Venus on to the resource table to field questions about the planets. Boy did these guys get a ear full! Jeremy and Casey had questions concerning Mars, Stacie was very concerned about Pluto's new status, and Ron wanted to understand the dynamics our seasonal change. Of course all these inquiries open up more questions too. My personal goal with every visitor is : get an eye full of photons and a mind full wonder. They will be back for more!
