Well, the Waikoloa Elementary School star party wasn’t much for stars. We did see one star briefly through the clouds. There were four telescopes setup in the schoolyard waiting in hopes that the clouds would clear, but it was not to be. We stood around talking story and examining Cliff’s 24″ telescope. A truss tube dob is a great scope to show how a telescope works, all the inner parts exposed.
We waited an hour, but around 8pm the first hints of rain began. As the drops thickened we scurried to get the telescopes put away.
My thanks to the WHAC members who came out in support of this event! We will be attempting to reschedule the event, possibly for May 22nd.
