This one is a bit of a doozy! It was my first log for a talk that I’ve given, and since I was likely the only one logging it, I wanted to make sure I got everything. The kids were just so great! It was not the ideal situation for a talk. At first, they […]
We were invited to take some telescopes out to a camp held for Buddhist youth, quite a ways out of town compared to our usual outreaches. Objects shown included the Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, and the Cat’s Eye Nebula.

Here I am just over two months later, and I’ve already found incredible friends and mentors among the club. Good people, who take me seriously and treat me well, and […]
