chatted with Maia

A co-worker of Elinor's is interested in ramping up with astronomy, particularly for her kids. She says they would "love" to view planets and other objects with their very own telescope.

I encouraged her to join me and other Toronto Centre RASC members next week at the COS. Then she and the kids can see and try different 'scopes, ask lots of questions, and actually look at some planets (like Venus and Saturn).

I left her with a PDF of Alan Dyer's article on 10 tips for getting started stargazing (found in the SkyNews site reviews section).
