Kelly Beatty, the Executive Editor of Sky and Telescope Magazine has
a nice little article today in his "Homepage News" web feature. It's
all about International Sidewalk Astronomy Night (ISAN) and he used
one of our Old Town Pasadena sidewalk astronomy pictures taken by
Mojo (of my telescope and people looking through it) in the article.
Kelly mentions that Donna Smith, our intrepid Burbank sidewalk
astronomer came up with the idea. Congrats to Donna - she is on this
email list, and will be out with telescopes at San Fernando and Palm
(near Ben and Jerry's) in Burbank tomorrow night.
Here's the article,
but if you
don't see the image, try this link:
That's all for now - we will have gorgeous weather and sky conditions
both tonight and Saturday night too! Yay!
