Friday’s open house at the EIU Observatory was a success. We had 254 visitors from 8:30PM until we closed up the dome at 11:00.
Special thanks to three people. Maggie who manned the main 16″ telescope and was explaining the wonders of Jupiter to all 254 people, I hope she is able to speak today! Tyler was in the control room and had set up the computers to show the recent observations of asteroid rotation. Finally Hannah was outside with the 8″ scope entertaining the people waiting in line.
