One WOW Astronomy Day Event

My good friend and fellow astronomy outreach guy Mike with his merry band of intrepid astronomy geeks back in Buffalo N.Y. did a program that you must see! I had to rob this photo from Mike for this depicts why we do what we do- priceless! Mike you guys are awesome and your city is very lucky to have the dedicated group that you are!

Mike's blog is Drive-by

Great post, you are doing exciting things. How do I find out where your next events will be? I hope we can visit soon to talk about Sierra nevada Journeys.

Thanks Ted - I try to get out 2-3 times per week weather and life permitting. You can always drop me a quick email and I can get you up up speed.

Outreach is so enriching and fun!

Thanks so much Richie for honoring me on your blog. You made my day! I even had to show my wife- She was equally pleased. It so funny that you picked this particular picture of this sweet little girl because its my favorite and it does sum it all up why we do what we do and why it is so rewarding. When this young lady finished her "Tricked Out Star Chart" she was so proud! Her response was indeed priceless and made all the work for astro day worth it. I actually had about 5 pictures of her and her younger sister.

I need to do a better job of jotting peoples names down as you do. It does really personalize it.

Thanks again!
