It was A-MA-ZING!!!!
I don't spend as much one-on-one time with Jack now that Mattie has come along. So, when I saw the e-mail this past week about "Astronomy Night 2013," I knew this was our chance.
|Getting Ready to Go!|
We spent much of the night gazing at the moon, the stars and Jupiter.
I wish I had pictures of the massive telescopes in the field, but we were asked not use flash photography because it would mess up everyone's night vision.
Before our star-gazing began, there was a quick presentation on constellations, along with some hot chocolate, Milky Way candy bars and Moon Pies.
Seeing the moon's craters and its brightness through those telescopes left me with a sense of awe. And when I saw Jupiter I was nothing less than giddy.
Jack was enamored as well. He kept going on and on about how "cool" it all was.
I hope if nothing else, this post will inspire you to find a good night this winter season to bundle up and ponder the majestic heavens with your children or anyone willing to brave the cold along beside you!
