Fun for all at Aldrich Observatory BBQ and Star Party!

Aldrich had the Observatory BBQ and Star Party on 8/10. A great many Aldrich members attended with their spouses and children. During the day we ate great food and shot off air-burst rockets in the field which the kids just loved. At night we were able to stargaze with the club observatory and the club 15" dobsonian.
