PAS Christmas Dinner

Friday night (Dec. 7, 2012)  The Pontchartrain Astronomy Society  held its annual Christmas party at the Rivertown Science Center in Kenner.  I didn't count but my guesstimate is ~50 people in attendance.  There was lots of good food and fellowship.

It was an especially good night for me.  First my parental pride was on display as I witnessed my daughter, Heather LeBlanc,  inducted as the next president of the PAS.

Then I had the very good fortune to win the grand prize in the raffle: a Coronado PST !  This new scope will offer a new aspect to my observing and I look forward to learning more about our closest star.

The evening concluded with a laser light show set to the music of Pink Floyd at the Kenner Planetarium's 50-foot domed screen.  Thanks to all PAS members and the staff at the Rivertown Science Center for a memorable evening.
