School Night for Astronomy 2016

Wayne Smith, Cristo Sanchez and I, with help from Billy Fort of Longview and Bob Sanford of Tyler had 21 students and 8 Adult as this year's School Night for Astronomy at the Mineola Nature Preserve last Saturday night. We had a brilliant Iridium Flare light up the sky. Pictures by Johnny Taylor. While at the event Johnny Taylor did so solar photography with his solar filter on his camera. He captured the image of the jet transit the Sun's disk. He said, "It may be the luckiest picture he has ever taken."
