...Also, I ran into ATS mod Jbird there, who was wearing an ATS hat.
And so you did Dr.DOOM.
What a surprise, meeting another ATS'er IRL.
You can actually discuss without typing, previewing and editing .
I think we were both surprised by the large turnout.
Luckily I got some view time in early, as the crowd seemed to sneak in around us
while the Dr. and I chatting about ATS and the local star scene.
And except for the 30-40mph winds (sheesh) it was perfect viewing weather.
I got there early in hopes of checking out the Sun and was helpfully pointed
toward this little solar specific scope which offered up a very crisp image
of the sun complete with a nice prominence.
An impressive array of models and sizes.
Checked out Saturn with this one, courtesy of one of the local astro gurus, a charsimatic high-energy ambassador of Astronomy, with wonderfully
contagious enthusiasm .
