Just the article on the CBS Sunday morning news. I'll have to plan a motorcycle ride up there and check it out.

You Rock! I just seen your segment on Sunday Morning. I was inspired by your resolve and determination. I think our family's next vacation will include a stop to your planetarium. Good luck, I hope those closer will visit such a wonderful and educational treasure

Just watched the CBS Sunday morning show. I am impressed. I teach astronomy at a High School in Madison, MS. Unfortunately you are a little too far to take my class there on a field trip (I wish I could), but it will make a good excuse for a long motorcycle trip.
I admire your effort and determination and I wish you success

I go to the Tomahawk, WI motorcycle rally every year and never heard of this or I would have visited. I can't wait to make an appointment to see your dream that became a reality. I'll see you in the spring!

I too saw your dream on Sunday morning as well. Too bad I live so far away on the east coast. Your place is very cool!! Congratulations! I've been to Vega Brae observatory in 2000. It was an awesome experience. I'll keep you on my mind when I get close to WI.
