the long main event

Enjoy the banquet dinner. Sat with Phil, Katrina, Denis, Joan, Scott, Elaine, Tony, Nicole, and Sara. Food was good. I liked the astro-themed desserts.

We returned later for the keynote by Dr Carolyn Porco. Some interesting candid insights. She was surprisingly crass at times. Lovely images of Saturn, the moons, and the rings.

The photo show and awards was nice but long. I was getting very uncomfortable in my chair. Dave Dev made it bearable.

The prizes at the end was fun but I really was thinking about the clear skies. It carried on for way too long. Andy didn't win. Heather did. I was glad to get out of the tent.
