Thanks to all those who brought telescopes and assisted with our public outreach between 7-10 PM each evening. We had several Boy
Scout troops in attendance, as well as other very interested campers. Friday evening's sky was lovely. Saturday
was mostly cloudy, but we still had several visitors on the field.
