Dean Johnson

    Thanks to all the wonderful people of the RAC that came down and made this such a great event. I'm very happy that you all got to see the Flatin Farm at its very best.

    We had another great night of observing tonight, starting at 9 p.m and lasting until 1:30 a.m. Then the wind picked up as lightning started lighting up the sky to the southwest, so we packed up. Elvis left the field at 2 p.m. along with the other die hard astronomers that stayed for the second night, Duane, Dewey, Jerome, Joshua, Jillissa, Brandon, Captain Kirk and yours truly.

    We had an unexpected treat when my sister Audreyjean came out at midnight and stayed for an hour to watch stars and visit with us. She thought that the hayfield might be planted into peas next year and not corn. If that happens, we could do this all again next year. She told us that she hopes we have a Star B-Q every year.

    Godspeed and God Bless to you all.

    It may have been the two most glorious nights for astronomy I've ever had. 🙂
