There are 118 cheerful
astronomers in this picture! Suggestion: Now go to the "Star Party History Section" and
count up how many astronomers we had back in 1989!
Below you'll find a close-up
of some of the folks in the back-center of the group. Among those
seen in this close-up are ex-Director and Star Talk host Dave
Powell; near him Janet Hughes in the orange cap; further
to the right, near Jeff Henning and photographer John
Foster is Candace Pratt, for oh so many years now the
main force behind all those wonderful prizes that get given away
at the end of each OSP. My old friend Brian Richardson
is hatless with a sun-burned nose and a blue t-shirt; I sold my
famous John Dobson-inscribed Big Red Dob
to Brian many years ago and now it resides in the RCA scope library..There
are others in the picture whose names I am not sure about, so
I won't mis-name or misspell them!
night's sunset was spectacular, with darkness and lightning off
in the SE quadrant, while a thin line of the western horizon was
lit with heavenly colors at the same time!
See you next year for the big
your Group Photographer since 1989, and many more to come!
