Recently been down south (Aldermaston) where after a barbecue the evening turned out to be just right for a spot of constellation identification.
I didn't have the laser pointer so had to do with hand pointing but never the less people enjoyed just learning about what they could see.
One of the younger boys had the latest smatphone which had an (app) which when pointed at the sky identified the relevant constellation which proved useful in convincing sceptics that the names I mentioned where in fact true.
I don't know whether the evening helped some to become more aware of what they could see but I know that the evening ended with people saying that it was a great end to a day of fun.
