Summerour’s Astronomy Night 2015-03-06

6 March, 2015 (18:05) | Outreach | By: tramakers

Astronomy Night for Summerour Middle was postponed from the end of February to March 6th. And what a night it was! We had 9 members and 6 scopes at the school. About 100 students and parents learned about what astronomy really is about, and were able to see some nice views of the night sky including Jupiter and its moons, the Orion Nebula, our Moon and some star clusters. Frank treated the early birds to a view of Venus in full day light and inside we presented several presentations of the solar system by taking everyone on a trip in our imaginary space craft and observing the planets close by. They also were very surprised to learn about another take on gravity and what it really takes to take humans to Mars. A great and successful evening again. Thanks to all who participated!
