Feed Your Brain: Sleaford Observatory Open House

I went to the Sleaford Observatory open house last night.  It was quite a bit of fun, even with the clouds.  There were discussions of telescopes, the school house ordered from an Eaton’s catalog and meteorite hunting.

They had over 20 visitors on a fully overcast night.

There is a second open house tonight (Saturday, Oct. 24) .  Unfortunately the weather is unlikely to be much better.
