I know I enjoy going out to groups and doing presentations, especially to non-astronomers, but following my presentation in Bedford last week, I have just received the following comments from them and it has really made my week:

“It was absolutely fantastic as you guided us through “A Whistle-stop Tour of the Universe” (Hitch-hiking on a Ray of Light) – the images were superb – so exotic. It really was out of this world. You explained everything to us so we were able to understand the various unique and incredible shots. We all enjoyed your charismatic friendly personality and do hope we will have the pleasure of another of your talks sometime in the future”

That’s what it’s all about, bringing the universe into everyone’s lives and showing them what an absolutely spectacular place it is.
