I went to my neighbor Mark Delgado’s meteor party. They found a large tarantula spider. It had crawled under a tent. I asked for a cup and nudged the spider into it to carry it off where it would be safe. I let it crawl out and onto my hand and up my sleeve of my jacket and back into the cup; the kids were fascinated that I let the spider do that. The meteor party turned out to be mostly a party, but I did get a chance to get some folks interested in the night sky. The kids were very interested especially when I let them mess around with my small telescope. We saw many bright earthgrazers come zipping across the sky. I had a whole lot of fun and made many new friends there…
