Black Forest Star Party Notes!

Screen Shot 2015-09-14 at 10.02.51 AMI just returned from a wet but spirited Black Forest Star Party at the wonderful Cherry Springs State Park in north-central Pennsylvania. I was one of the event’s speakers and my topic was The Night Sky As Story: Astronomy Outreach with a Purpose. I described my approach to sidewalk astronomy as well as the insights of other outreach astronomers around the country. I’d like to turn my talk notes into a blog post (or a series), perhaps an article for one of the big two Astronomy magazines, and eventually a book called The Sidewalk Astronomer’s Handbook. In the meanwhile, here is my Prezi. It’s not going to tell you a lot unless you heard my talk, but that’s because I don’t believe in the index-card approach to visuals!
