Quick Post: Night At The Museum

Last night was the once-monthly laser show/star party at Virginia Living Museum's (VLM) Abbitt Planetarium, and I was quite happy to help out.  For a change, however, instead of being outside manning a telescope I was inside the Education Center lobby with my orrery set up on a solid table, talking to guests about my little brass object of obsession, the history of such model solar systems, and planetary science in general.  I had a blast, and for once didn't tempt pneumonia by being out in the 17 degree f weather outside!

Everyone has a "happy place", and mine is at the VLM sharing the wonders of the Universe with visitors to the Museum. That'll work!
