We found out that the local observatory has free viewings clear Friday nights.  We've tried to go for a month but weather and illness prevented us.  Although foggy, we thought we'd give it a go.  

The members were awesome.  They talked to the kids like they were people.  They stayed with us and answered questions. They showed us their favorite posters, star maps, resources, telescopes.  They happily let us use the telescopes.

They even opened up the dome to let us take a look at the big telescope in action.  We focused on the moon since it was still pretty foggy.

The moon.

What a gem of a place.  We'll be back the next clear Friday night for sure.
