I received Night Sky Network Outreach Award pins for my wife and myself at the February general meeting of the Astronomical Society of Harrisburg.  They were the result of assisting with the club's work in public outreach during 2019.

Congratulations to you and your wife Dave!

I have only recently joined the community --but have already found your name familiar as you have been a fountain of useful information...this has been an invaluable contribution to kick-starting my astronomical interests and feeding that insatiable desire to always discover and observe *more*.

I personally really appreciate the work you put into this community, it really makes a difference (especially because I live 2hrs from the nearest city, and almost 4hrs from the nearest club).

All the best,

Congratulations Dave !


I've been doing outreach for about 6 years now, but our club only just joined Astro league, so we've got some catching up to do!


Any tips on keeping it fresh in the longterm, rather than just going back to the Gee Whizzes out of habit?

So glad you received it! Creating and shipping the pins to clubs is one of the most fun times of the year at the NSN. We love getting them out to folks to help recognize their awesome work in outreach!

Well deserved, Dave!


And thank you for the outreach you do for the broader amateur astronomy community across the planet.


We don't have any pins but we sure do enjoy and appreciate your monthly info postings! 


God Bless!
