Astronomy Jamboree Day

Today was the Custer Institute Astronomy Jamboree, and the keynote speaker was my good friend and mentor in astronomy, Sam.  Here is he setting up his computer for the talk.  He first talked about the history of the Hayden Planetarium and how he first visited it with his dad as a young boy.  On that visit he first realized that astronomy was to be his calling. He would later teach at the Hayden. It was a very moving talk.  Then he talked about the upcoming total eclipse of the sun this coming August. He talked with such enthusiasm about the beauty and the magic of the eclipse, that I doubt that anyone who heard the talk would consider not seeing the eclipse!
