Maybe to complete the show, we can have the Luftwaffe fly over....

Here are some recent web stories about Open Air. The comments section of the October 7 piece suggests that turnout of late isn't impressive.

thanks, Geoff,
I've dropped it off my most interested list. Been wondering about the Bloom Observatory and Rittenhouse being able to participate? I hope they have the best outcome for dark skies....

Tonight in Philly is the "Planetarium on the Parkway" featuring Franklin Institute Chief Astronomer Derrick Pitts. We have clear skies and the moon is waning, an excellent time to look up at the stars... http://associationforpublicart.org/planetarium/
Sorry Tom, we tried to stream the event live but alas even the best webcam does not capture the dimness of the searchlights. On the plus side we did manage to turn off the entire public lighting in Eakins Oval. I'm sure we will see many Telescopes on the parkway tonight!

Best of luck on your event! Sorry we won't be able to check it out. I hoped to hear the key remarks, etc. Would have been fun for everyone to see. Thanks to all for the best reasons possible.
Best, Tom

Well, so much for all of that.... I guess? Is it over?

Did the tree fall?
I didn't hear it... (an old adage)

In what may be the last "news" report about Open Air, it is noted that, "Observers say between 100 and 300 people came to the avenue nightly." I don't know what level of turnout would be considered good for an outdoor event in Philly.

Newsworks October 16

No mention is made of the "Planetarium on the Parkway" event that was supposed to have been held on October 12.
