I was surprised by how indifferent Alex was to the common interest of his audience in identifying constellations or looking at familiar objects through a telescope.

Alex has a passion for astronomy and teaching and it shines. This was not just a viewing event, but a small group interactive star experience that all levels of prior astronomy knowledge (and ages) enjoyed. His impressive telescope zeroed in on both close planets and...More
