NEAF and NEAIC: Until Next Year

We returned last night, tired but happy from this year's NEAF conference.  The vendor turn out was good and overall attendance appeared good, too, although it was  little hard to tell from our perspective.  We spent most of the two days in the children's area helping with the various activities including a comet demonstration (followed by a craft activity), making 3D constellation models (Orion and the Big Dipper), some informal demonstrations to understand the moon's phases, constructing spacecraft models, and more.

Alas, I did not get to attend the showing of Mars 3D, a new movie which made its debut at the show, so I guess I will have to wait for it to be officially released.
