~Last Year, 2017–January to December~
Overall, 2017 was a successful year for our little website. Interest in the eclipse in August, three free astronomy courses offered by Paul Owen and Curt Nason, an active Outreach season, good media coverage, and interest generated by Facebook Live feeds via Astronomy by the Bay all contributed. The overall efforts of an active group of individuals pulling in the same direction speak for themselves.
