All I ever have to do to prove that is just set up a telescope on a sidewalk somewhere, anywhere, and people will gather around in no time.

Most of us have an innate curiosity about the planet we live on and the universe surrounding us. It never fails that someone will walk up and ask me a question that's been on their minds for years, and heave a great sigh of relief. "Wow, that's amazing." or "See, I knew it!".
