…to all who joined us for our first Community Reading, “Poetry at Perkins: In Celebration of the Night Sky!” It was such a lovely evening, and, together, we raised $800 for continued good works at Perkins Observatory! We could not have done it without the participating poets who volunteered their time and talents (pics available on our Facebook page here!) and without those who purchased tickets and joined us in Delaware for a true celebration of cosmos. The weather was perfect, and volunteers from the Columbus Astronomical Society set up four telescopes on the front lawn AND they opened the dome for us all to view the rings of Saturn! It could not possibly have gone better, and we’re supremely grateful to everyone who made it possible.
