Astronomy Night

Three friends and I went to a grammar school last night for an astronomy program for some bright young students.  We each brought a different kind of telescope and the first part of the evening was about us explaining how our telescopes worked.  One member of the group spoke about binoculars.  Then, with great luck, the cloudy skies dissipated and we were able to view the moon and Juipter and its moons.  The kids were thrilled, and asked lots of great questions.  It was a very rewarding evening.
