Sun Earth Moon Tuesday Street Astro
I missed doing a Saturday program due to the weather but Tuesday bloomed pretty along with a open time slot for the Sidewalk Guy to get out and do some astro pollinating! Lots of folks out and about mid afternoon with temps in the 60's - perfect! This outreach pulled in 87 visitors to my celestial educational center. This group stayed with me for a hour+ with folks coming in and going and we modeled and discussed so many topics. The Sun Earth Moon system was our jumping off point to the cosmos!
Eric came by on his bike after a couple of fast laps around the park with his workout buddy. They were glued to everything and later Eric came back to enjoy some late afternoon Luna views. With map in hand he was off surveying everything the moon had to offer. When others came by he readily gave up his "box seat" and then was at it again. This went on for sometime! He was kind enough to help me with crowd control and handouts to interested visitors as he shared about his views through CR150 with his infectious smile and tales of discovery.
Seems like this pollination effort is showing some fruit already!
