Dean Johnson

    We had a very pleasant time tonight. A couple of our friends that had not looked through a telescope came out and we showed them Saturn, "Cool!", Mars, Polaris A&B, and the Moon.

    They loved it. They soon got bored and left because Steve and I were limited by the moonlight. After they left, I nabbed Alpha Casseopia as a binocular double star and I told Steve, "there are 3 big craters by Mare Crisium that you can get tonight." He correctly found Cleomedes, Langrenus and Petavius.

    Hooray for the Moon!

    It was a very nice night for astronomy.

    Fall is in the air!
