Quote:I was especially impressed with the meteors.
First and foremost observing love: naked eye.
Last but not least, telescopes.
And I sometimes dabble with cameras.
Quote:I hope this video can inspire others to get into astronomy like it has for me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhgR3zVfo-0
Quote:I noticed in one of the moving camera scenes a star that didn't move then just disappeared. Anyone notice that?
