Some personal impressions from CAP2013 in Warsaw

One week meeting, listening and talking to people doing astronomy outreach programms everytime and everywhere around the globe.

That happened at CAP2013 in Warsaw.

Where else someone could feel better the joining spirit of astronomy and of our all ONE SKY ?

So this was one of the reasons for me to join CAP first time. Of course, knowing that some AWB-people will join it, was one more reason to fly to Poland - the homecountry of Nicolaus Copernicus.

Following some of my personal photographic impressions ......
