The Airstream Rally - Alumapalooza 2018

The Airstream Rally - Alumapalooza 2018

Scott and I spent several days at the 2018 Alumapalooza Airstream Rally at the Airstream Factory in Jackson Center OH. We got a tour of the factory and saw how they HAND CRAFT Airstreams of all shapes and sizes. It was truly amazing. 

We held a Star Party in front of the "Barbara Jean the Airstream" and 4 out of the 5 evenings we had great skies to show about 200 people through our scopes. The most interesting thing we learned is that Airstreamer's are very similar in demographics to astronomers and they also have the passion of getting into dark skies while traveling in their Airstream. 

We spoke in front of the group on Saturday morning about astronomy and discussed our products in the daylight to a positive response with many interesting questions and found lot's of interest in capitalizing on their dark sky adventures that could lead to an interest in astronomy.
