"The animations surprised and awed the students (especially the size comparison between celestial objects). It was also pertinent to click on a planet and have a zoom in to contemplate details of it."

"Very interesting and knowledgeable. All of my questions were answered with enthusiasm. My English was well welcomed too. The etelescope was great and
a beautiful view of the sky. Thanks!"
