By day I am a mild-mannered administrator at a major metropolitan planetarium.
I also have a secret identity. When the need arises I can, no phone booth required, become AstroGuy. I don’t wear tights (trust me, you don’t want that), and I have no cape (because I saw what happened to Syndrome in The Incredibles).
Nope – all I need to be AstroGuy is my trusty laptop, a projector, a screen, a dark room, a bunch of people seated on folding chairs in front of me, my laser pointer, and an hour or so.
AstroGuy can talk a blue streak about astronomy and show amazing pictures describing upcoming cool stuff in the night sky: Constellation and star identification, eclipses, transits, planetary oppositions, satellites, stargazing and a slew of other astronomy-related whatnot.
AstroGuy returns to that same REI store in Salt Lake City (33rd East & 33rd South) at 7PM on Thursday, April 19th.
It’s free, but you need to pre-register online at the REI website.
Don’t dawdle; seating is limited.
AstroGuy will be there. Will you?
Now all I need is a John Williams soundtrack.
