Nearly 300 people crowded into the ballroom at the Community Center Wednesday evening, Oct. 16, to be among the first to see the concept for the International Dark Sky Discovery Center (IDSDC) proposed for Fountain Hills.
The crowd seemed to like what it saw and heard in the presentation by IDSDC President Joe Bill. Outside the front door of the Community Center there was a telescope set up to give those interested a view of Saturn.
The enthusiasm needs to carry through, as now begins the arduous task of raising $18 million in private funding to make the project a reality.
