Astronomy Outreach

Star parties and public astronomy events offer great places to access a telescope.  I sometimes participate in astronomy outreach events, both official and spur-of-the-moment (which are my favorite).  Anyone who can get their first glimpse of Saturn’s rings through a telescope is awestruck. Lunar and planetary observations are accessible from any city, regardless of light pollution.
