We pause for this political PSA

There is something simultaneously hilarious and creepy about this video that Ron Howard, Andy Griffith, and Henry Winkler put out. Yes, it's for Obama, but even if you're not a Democrat, you'll laugh at Opie and Andy, Richie and the Fonz.

Astronomy Day already??

My, the time, she does fly. Saturday is Astronomy Day again at the George Observatory. I've already made note of it in a Cosmo.Sphere post.

Anyway, I'm going to be doing Photographer/Videographer/Floater duties from about noon to 11 PM. It's a lot of fun to see all those people being introduced to the wonders of the sky ("Bob, meet Jupiter. Jupiter, this is Bob.")

This time around I'm going to have a little more structure to the video I put together. I'll be talking with the guests and getting their impressions, and posing some questions to the volunteers. My aim is to say a little something about what draws people to marvel at the sky.

Here's one of the videos I shot last year:
