ran virtual SkyLab

Helped at the first Up In The Sky RASC event, in association with the Richmond Hill David Dunlap Observatory. Overall, things went well. In a Zoom meeting, we shared live telescopic views of celestial objects as well as pre-recorded views. We played Denise's excellent tour of the observatory as well as a video on getting started in astronomy. I ran a brief virtual sky display with Stellarium. It was great to interact with the customers and show them things they were interested in and curious about. 

I used Stellarium bookmarks for the first time!
