First Go at Explora was a success

The Explora volunteer group pulled together enough equipment to put on a great display and we got to know the new venue (we are now up on the second floor balcony). We had a visible ISS pass right as the sun was setting. Talk about things coming together! What are the chances you have an antenna up at an event and the sun is in the right spot to point up into the sky and say, “see that shiny object zipping through the sky, the radio on board that craft is what we are picking up with our antenna”.
