Today: Amazing Skies @ Witte Museum

Today (Sunday, July 19, 2009), Tina and I will be helping the San Antonio Astronomical Association out with the "Amazing Skies" event at the Witte Museum in San Antonio, TX. We will have our Meade 16" Lightbridge and our Meade 60mm Refractor (My First Scope) on display for the public to see inside the museum and outside fellow astronomers will be having Solar Telescopes set up for viewing. Tina will be helping with running one of the stations and I will be the photographer for the event and help relieve people when they need a break.

This is what the Witte Museum's website says:
"Experience outer space right in our back yard! This exciting event will feature NASA astronauts, hands-on activities, space exhibits and feature presentations for the whole family. Meet former NASA Astronaut Rick Hieb and John Blaha, shoot model rockets and ride the Rockit Rider in this informative and exciting atmosphere. Free with museum admission.
