Planetfest first-hand + video

There's nothing quite so amazing as watching photos from another world upload onto a giant screen.  I have had the privilege of being at two such events: the landing of the Mars Rover Spirit in 2004, and the landing of the Mars Science Lab Curiosity on Sunday.

You can read all about it on Altadenablog, right here: http://bit.ly/Planetfest

There are photos and a video that I took, too.

Meanwhile, here's a picture of a picture of a picture to whet your appetite.
