NEAF has passed us once again, and the KAS booth was a great success. Many members of the KAS and Kopernik staff helped out with the booth, and a great special thanks goes out to Art C. and George N. for their tireless efforts supporting the booth. Art talked to just about everyone who passed him, and really got the Kopernik name out there. An updated presentation was streamed across the monitors which included some updated videos and images (thanks Keith). Also at the booth were information on Kopernik AstroFest and the Kopernik Summer Programs. There was a lot of interest from folks in what was offered. A few prize drawings were held, and those had good involvement generating some buzz.
It was great to see our friends from Adirondack Public Observatory who were our next-door neighbors on the NEAF floor – they are doing well with their operations.
Coming up are the following:
- Possible KAS Trip to Cherry Springs State Park in mid-May – follow the KAS Facebook Page for updated information.
- The 2015 Cherry Springs Star Party Registration is Open – the event will be June 11-14th
- The Stellafane 2015 Registration has just opened – the event will be August 13th – 16th.
Hopefully you will join the KAS on one of these expeditions! It is a great time!
