During a presentation in 2015 at a local winery, one of the attendees asked "Do any of the objects tonight look like diamonds?"
Yes, the great globular cluster in Hercules -- our favorite object in the summer sky -- looks like thousands of diamonds. Once the telescope was directed to it, he got down on his knees and proposed! (She said "yes."!)
