Outreach - Westbury Community Garden

The Houston Astronomical Society held another outreach event at the Westbury Community Garden in southwest Houston on September 10, 2019. This is the second event held at the location. The skies were iffy around sunset with clouds and lightning far to the north. Luckily, the objects for the night: Moon, Jupiter and Saturn were in the southeast, opposite from the storms. Because of the possibility of rain, the attendance was not as expected. Still, we had about 75 people show up. Most telescopes were aimed at those three main objects. However, one 8” telescope went for other objects like the Ring - M57, Hercules cluster - M13, and double star - Albireo. Through Amelia’s “pink” telescope, we had 82 different views.

We had eight telescopes with 11 volunteers. We would like to thank those that brought their telescopes to the event: Dan and Rebe Roy, Jim King, Leah Hall, Debbie Moran, Ed Fraini with wife Anita and daughter Karla, and Lauren Herrington.
