The Space Station Museum celebrated its annual Novato Space Festival on Aug. 4 at Pacheco Plaza. The event featured astronauts, NASA engineers, space artifacts, space characters and hundreds of fans. Pictured (above, left to right) are Debbie Wreyford, Dave Nicholson and Civic Air Patrol cadets in front of an F8 fighter plane cockpit from the USS Hornet Museum.
The museum’s astronaut VIP panel discussion (above, top) brought in space fans from around the Bay Area while the museum’s mascot, Big John, held off the Storm Troopers (above, bottom).
