At last, we had a beautiful clear evening for me to set up the telescope and show some of the junior stardust children and there families our beautiful Moon. Unfortunately because of a barrier put up around the library, we were unable to view Saturn because it was behind the library building.
But all the children were every excited to be outside under the stars as I explained how the Moon goes around the Earth and how close it is to our planet as compared to Saturn. Then it was time for them all to be ‘Wowed’ by looking at the real Moon through my telescope.
I’ve been running the astronomy club at the Runaway Bay library now for over three years and get great joy when everyone is just blown away at seeing all our wonderful celestial objects in the night sky, please find some photos and a little movie I've made from the night :-)
