rained out star party

I helped with the library talk star party at the CAO.

I was to receive people and talk a bit about the observatory. That quickly evaporated when people arrived, exited their cars, and boogied to the GBO or Observing Pad. Most vehicles were ahead of Ian!

We briefly showed Saturn.

Ed T and Chris V did a virtual sky tour in the living room with Stellarium.

We watched a most unusual wall of cloud, filled with lightning, move slowly toward us. Later, when it started raining, I escorted some visitors to their cars under our big golf umbrella.
