Land of Luna at the RBG
By Ed Mizzi
On Saturday, May 14, several club members volunteered to be part of the
“Land of Luna – A grand opening celebration for families” event at the Royal Botanical Gardens. David Galbraith from the RBG had invited us to do some outreach in the form of sidewalk astronomy, so we set up several telescopes just outside of their brand new facility. And in spite of a mostly cloudy evening, we were able to show guests the Moon and Jupiter and received many oohs and aahs from both children and adults alike. We were there from 5:30 p.m. to almost 10:00 p.m. but it was well worth the effort and time.
In attendance were members Gary Bennett, Andy Blanchard, Ron Shields, Eric Golding, Gary Colwell and myself.
