Stellar sightings at the 2012 Ann Arbor Art Fair

Yesterday I spent 8 hours walking around the Ann Arbor Art Fair, which is actually comprised of 4 separate major art shows: Ann Arbor Street Art Fair (the original), Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair, State Street Area Art Fair, and Ann Arbor's South University Art Fair.

Among the world class art on exhibit, I found two pretty stellar booths!

Malone Photography had some amazing poster-size and panoramic photos for sale, which included amazing shots of the aurora borealis, star trails, and the Milky Way.

In spite of all the stellar imagery, I ended up buying a photo of a misty marsh scene. Nonetheless, if you're interested in great night sky photography, or scenic photos of Michigan that belong on a "Pure Michigan" billboard, then go to

Another booth I visited wasn't really in the art show, but in a street populated with booths for non-profit organizations. I even saw the Michigan Atheists representing!

Probably the coolest (to me anyway) was the booth for The Mars Society! I especially liked their On To Mars! poster. I received information on the ongoing Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS), and was reminded about the Curiosity landing coming up on August 6, 2012, 1:31 AM EDT.

Like I said, not the flashiest booth, but I was thrilled to see some interplanetary advocacy at the Art Fair!
