A combination of educational presentations and live hands-on telescope observations made this an enjoyable experience. John us a passionate and knowledgeable person who takes the time to provide an interesting experience. Jupiter and Saturn were our highlights.

It was a great evening. No cloud in sky. Amazing star view. Great host and it is not technical for most of the talk. I would bring my kids to come again.
