I just wanted to post a quick note that Derrick Pitts of the Franklin Institute is going to be the guest on the Colbert Report tonight. The Franklin Institute is having special exhibition of one of Galileo's telescopes opening April 4th in the middle of 100 Hours of Astronomy.
They also may talk about the Galieleoscope, one of the projects for the International Year of Astronomy. As I have blogged before, the Galileoscope is a low cost ($15+shipping) telescope that you can use to see the rings of Saturn and other wonders. See the Galileosocope web site for more info.Tune in tonight...I will post video of the interview when it is available.
