  • We went to a star watching party last night and saw a few at around 11 pm. We honestly didn't think we were going to get to see any because of the time, so it was quite a bonus along with the presentation and getting to see Saturn through the telescope.

  • This was the only picture that I got since they asked us not to use our cameras around the telescopes since it causes light pollution. Jeremy was studying his star and planet book before and during the presentation. He looked up things as the presenter was talking about it.
