Thanks to Ken Lum, William Phelps, and Jerry for sharing their scopes,
knowledge, and humor with my friends and neighbors. We had about fifty people
who stayed a long time, mostly families with several children, who ooohed and
aaah'd over the sights. Viewing was very steady, though a bit heavy, until
about 11 P.M., when it got murky. After most folks left, the high haze
disappeared and it got very dark, though dew was a problem.
This was the second successful star party we've had here, and people are
starting to bring their own scopes and get involved. I think we might be
ready to start a semi-regular local group of observers. The kids especially
were captivated by the high quality views of the planets and the Moon.
It means a lot to me to get to this point, where I can share my enthusiasm
and interest in astronomy with local friends and families.
