I once again at last minute decided to do a outreach and things worked out pretty good. I really like to be as prepared as possible with a quality presentation and solid data base so my guests can really learn and enjoy the universe and it's wonders. But when it is said and done it is about people not me. It is not what I know or present but it is about providing for my peeps a chance to smile and enjoy gift of nature.
Amanda and Daniel stopped by early on and were hooked right for the start. Daniel could not get his eye off Saturn! Questions flowed about all sorts of astronomical things. They participated in 2 modeling exercises and listened intently as I worked with other visitors. The needs of their little daughter required them to head home but they will be back to learn of the Moon when we start that again! I had 57 visitors over a 3 hour time slot. I am out later with the longer days and we have many mid-evening walkers who have not seen the astro guy yet. More folks to hook and reel in on this astronomy stuff!
