Obama's backyard star party.

You gotta like a president who has a star party at the White House. Obama had a bunch of cool guest there too, NASA boss Charles Boldin, moon walker Buzz Aldrin, hubble fixer John Grunsfeld, and a few other guests.
Although, it looked kind of staged - at least his first look through the scope - they had him take a peek at a double star in bright stage lights through an 8 inch Celestron - after telling him what eyepiece to look through.
We did have Charles Simonyi at our meeting once, but we are still working on getting Obama to come to our summer star party.
