Feeding the Five Thousand

Muriel Enock
1988 International Astronomical Union Colloquium  
The Dominion Astrophysical arranged 20 special viewing sessions for Comet Halley, and although most of these were clouded out, some 3000 people attended. The Observatory receives 30 000 visitors annually and its display area was recently renewed. This was done on a very limited budget, but the display succeeded in providing both scale and distance models of Solar-System bodies, telescope models, and much visual material, all accompanied by bi-lingual text.
