Hands-On Astronomy in Cedar Park

May 3, 2015 Uncategorized 0



It was a beautifully clear night for moon viewing and stargazing last night! Students learned how to use their telescopes and saw Jupiter, the Moon,  and Venus. They heard a Japanese tale about the rabbit in the Moon and used a Moon map to find the Tycho crater and ejecta.  They also learned how to use a star chart to find the brightest constellations.  Overall it was a very productive evening! Thank you to Life in Motion Photograpy for snapping this beautiful photo of the class as night began to fall.
