Check-In/Welcome & Keynote 5:30 - 7:00PM Badlands NP Ampitheater
This years Welcome and Keynote will again be very special. Erik Kuna is our featured Keynote speaker this year. Join us outdoors at the Badlands NP Ampitheater! There are bench seats available, think about bringing your parade chair incase you want to spread out.
Erik Kuna is a rocket and spaceflight photojournalist with over 20 years of professional experience who’s also passionate about Milky Way, Astro and Landscape photography. His goal is to create images that help educate people about the space industry, our universe and the night sky, while also inspiring folks to learn more about the beauty of space. He has always been into photography and photojournalism, but his passion was ignited in 2015 by seeing the SpaceX Falcon 9 booster land successfully at night. He felt like from that moment, he had to be part of documenting and capturing the beauty and inspiration of spaceflight and has never looked back.
Erik is also the Vice President of Operations for KelbyOne. Not to mention one heck of a good guy!
Erik's presentation will be, "Ignite Your Passion: The Sky's The Limit!" Join us Friday night during the event, at the Badlands N.P. Ampitheater for an amazing night outdoors!
