Excellent content. Huge crowd. Kind of hard to hear presenter with all the noise in the crowd. Wish the volume was louder on the mic.

The presenters were wonderful! I truly enjoyed the presentation. There were an awful lot of people, but that's just because this kind of solar eclipse does not happen too often at all!
