We are kicked off and I am very excited by it all. Though my first event was weather challenged there was lots of enthusiasm and folks want to do the astronomy thing. In spite of the cold, wind and general gloominess of the day there were smiles galore and anticipation for clear skies ahead! I had 9 SSE's in attendance besides the vicarious attendance of my blog pals!
I did a general presentation on "Earth Our Moving Observation Platform" and one on telescopes. Folks seemed very glued to it all! Here's our Polar Dancing Line!
Tom and I got in a tussle as to who moves the Earth!
SSE'r Kellie is ready to go with this nice 6"Orion StarBlast scope.
And of course SUG shows his budding astronomers how to finger print your optics this way everyone knows this scope is yours!
