Brief Introduction to Myself

Comments About My Public Outreach:
High School Group Attending Little Thompson Observatory

"I would just like to say what a great job Mike does with my groups.
I am the astronomy teacher at Loveland High and he is such a pleasure
to work with. The kids really feed off his love of the sky and his
enthusiasm. Way to go Mike!!" -- Ben Brown

Neptune Returns Talk
January 26, 2012
Lookout Mountain Nature Center
"Thank you very much! We enjoyed this event very much,
and learned a lot. We hope you'll hold more presentations like this.
It was just the right size, length of time, time of day, etc.
And the speaker was great. Thanks again." --Pat Dickson

"I spoke with you last Thursday at the Return of Neptune
presentation, which was very interesting and I have to say -
you did very well putting the information in a format
that most people could understand." -- Teagan Glenn
