Our astronomy club had a Moon Watch tonight at an elementary school some distance away. We had a great turnout of both children and adults - perhaps one hundred people, which is great! It is such a rewarding experience to show both children and adults views of the moon, and the planet Jupiter, as we did tonight. To hear their expressions of delight in seeing the rugged craters on the moon, and to see the subtle bands of Jupiter and four of her moons was such a treat for me. Here are some of the students waiting in line as one of them looks into the eyepiece of my telescope to first view the moon.
