Over the years of operating The Astronomy Roadshow, I have been honoured to meet a few celebrities. All these have entered the dome and seen a presentation, not just met.. that's easy;  just turn up at an autograph signing event.

 celebrities that have entered the dome

Patrick answered the public's questions at the end of my talk; I was very honoured.

I was once asked by a child 'Are you famous?'

I replied 'Do you recognise me?' 

She said 'No!'  

I said 'Obviously not then!'
