This episode of "365 Days of Astronomy" is sponsored by Miranda Richards in memory of her dad, Dennis Rolph. "I was only 4-1/2 at the time, but was lucky enough to be living in Idaho when there was a total eclipse of the sun thirty years ago (2/
2926/79), and I was lucky enough to have a dad who would inspire us to be amazed at the universe. The eclipse was just one of the first memories I have of his instillment of science into my life. We'd watch NOVA and Cosmos together. We'd take out the telescope and view the rings of Saturn and the Galilean moons of Jupiter. If you have children, please take the time to share the sky with them, even if it's just laying on a hillside staring at Orion like we used to do. The wonder that astronomy evokes is something that lasts a lifetime. Thank you all for putting this project together!"
