It is fun to decorate my observatory dome for different holidays. For Halloween, I make it up to look like an enormous Jack-O-lantern. After putting the eyes, nose and smile on the side of the dome, I softly illuminated the dome with orange lights. It looks like the Great Pumpkin rising out of the pumpkin patch behind the fence. It certainly attracts more Trick-Or-Treaters on Halloween than I ever had before!
