  • A laser guided astronomy program as you sit in comfort on our heated platform, outdoors under the stars! This will be at our farm in Colchester, CT, starting at 7 pm. It will be a 90 minute program. Astronomer will trace out the constellations with a laser, point out giant red stars, galaxies, and have a general discussion on astronomy. We will also view the Pleaides star cluster through a telescope! The Milky Way galaxy will be visible and we are likely to view a handful of meteors! (Early Geminid Meteors). Once you RSVP, I will email you the details directly on Thursday or Friday as we monitor the weather (right now forecasts are clear for Friday night).

    So, I get a call on my tin can attached to a string going up to the stratosphere and beyond. It's the Cosmic Surfer. Seems he has a date in a distant galaxy on Friday from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. "Anyone I know?" He didn't answer. Said it was five or so light-years away. "I wouldn't walk around the block for a date. Too dangerous." He didn't comment. Says he might get lucky and spend the night. Asks me if I'd keep an eye on the Milky Way for him. Said if he's not back in ninety minutes, keep watching. He'll ring the tin when he gets back.

    Says he wouldn't mind if I bring some guests. I remind him of the walk around the block but said I'm gonna be with some other starry-eyed types and that we could take shifts. Said he knew he could count on me. I said, "Not so fast, buster. It's 200 bucks plus expenses." He says it's already in the mail. What a bull s___t artist this guy is. He owes me thousands of bucks and I ain't never gonna see no pennies from heaven bouncing off my noodle.
