My friends Adam and Jess invited me out to Stonybrook University for Astro-Fest 2012 put on by the Stonybrook Astronomy Club. I brought one of my home-made telescopes so they could use it as part of their display about telescope making. They also had another friend come from a different astronomy club, and she brought her telescope so that people could view the planet Venus. Here she is setting up her scope with another member of the astronomy club. I got to talk with a lot of the students who had displays set up for the public and had some really nice conversations about astronomy which made for a great evening.
