We had a sold out crowd of just over a hundred last night. During Claudia Alexander's demo the resolution didn't allow any of the graphs or text to be readable. The planetarium director halted it and moved on to our local program early. During the main presentation we had the crowd come back to the auditorium excited about seeing "the pictures of Vesta". About a half hour into it, families started to sneak out. By the time we got to the pictures maybe half the people were gone. Those that stuck it out couldn't understand most of what was being explained about the pictures.
