It was a nice event except too many people and not enough space.

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!
