All four seasons showed face on the North Rim. Starting with a balmy morning under intermittent sunshine. By noon the temperature dropped and it hailed briefly.
Then it snowed and turned to sleet and rain with loud thunder.
Yet the sky above the North Rim cleared before sunset with clouds hovering over the South Rim which later blew across the canyon and blocked the night sky for telescope viewing on the last night of the Star Party.
Last night special speaker Don Palac from NASA talked about “Living and working in space” while sharing some humorous images of astronauts going about daily life. Imagine eating out of tubes so your food doesn’t float away as you hover over the table, being velcroed to a wall in your sleeping bag over night or peeing into……. I just can’t go there.
