A Few Snapshots taken at IPS 2000


The International Planetarium Society held its conference at the Planétarium de Montréal from July 9 to 13, 2000. Robert J. Ballantyne began his 20-year planetarium career as a charter member of the family of lecturers at that planetarium, back in 1966. He attended the conference and took a few snapshots. If you have pictures taken at the conference, and posted at your website, we would be pleased to provide a link to your page. Please send an email to robert@ballantyne.com. If you click the thumbs on this page you will see the enlargement. Use your Back button to return to this page.

Thanks for dropping by this site. I would appreciate an email just to know who was here. These are not photographic gems. I hauled out the camera as an afterthought in the last days of the conference. They may help you to attach faces to some of the stack of cards you brought back from the conference. These pictures are in alphabetical order of the filenames. Congratulations to the staff of the Planétarium de Montréal for running an exceptional conference!
Best wishes... rjb
