One Amazing Night

Many years ago my neighborhood experienced an aurora borealis, a very rare occurrence in Connecticut. Everyone was outside staring up at the night sky. I was only 12 but knew what it was and started telling all the adults about it. And now I'm many years older teaching science to high shcool and college students and still awestruck at the beauty of the universe.
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
