EIU Observatory welcomes Moraine Valley Upward Bound Program. These brave souls walked a half mile from the road this afternoon in 97 degree weather! Just to see us in the daytime! It’s a good thing I didn’t tell them it was 108 under the dome, and 124 before the dome was opened. All turned out well. Everyone got CDs of astrophotos and they didn’t even mind my bad jokes, and I didn’t mind the good questions. I hope to Eastern sees some of them in the future as potential physics and astronomy students.
