What a great evening! Truly an event for all ages. My three boys, their girlfriends, my elderly parents and me all really enjoyed the opportunity to see the night sky in close up. Thanks for giving up your time on a Saturday night and allowing us to share your valuable equipment and your knowledge.

My 8yo daughter and I went last year and saw for the first time three of Saturn’s moons, along with the rings! Truly worth going to.
