Following the lecture he was greeted by an eager audience and warmly answered questions, signed autographs and posed for pictures. On behalf of the Cyprus Planetarium we organized a private dinner to honor the professor.

On Tuesday, the professor visited our SPICA Remote Observatory in Prodromos where he had a chance to see the remote astrophotography operations, equipment and telescopes up close and he expressed great interest.
