Five members of our astronomy club drove out to Holbrook for a Moon watch at the library. It was a children's library and a whole bunch of people showed up. We set up our telescopes and looked at Saturn, and Mars, and then when the full moon rose, we explored that. The children were wonderful, and they were amazed that they could see the "real" Saturn and Mars. It is one of the most rewarding things I do, to let people see the Moon and the planets in a telescope, for the very first time, in many cases.
