Comments and anecdotes about the event:
Due to wind and rain, we were unable to hold our telescope viewing session and do our planned NSN activities. We did hold a presentation entitled "The View From Orbit and Beyond: Astronaut Experiences and Images of Earth", by Paul Fjeld one of our newest club members. Paul got his start with the NASA program at age 16 as a junior coorspondant in Toronto. He is a space illustrator and has helped design many of the STS mission patches. The presentation was very well received by all those in attendance.
