104. Seeing Planets

We had a very cool program at the library yesterday.  Astronomer Kevin Manning spoke to the kids and brought his big telescope for them to look through.

Unfortunately, we didn’t realize the sun wouldn’t go down until 8:45 pm — with the library closing at 9:00.

Fortunately, I was the one responsible for closing the library last night, so I could make an exception for stargazers.

And along the way, I got to see Mars, and the moons of Jupiter, and the rings of Saturn.

Tremendously cool!
