Today after school, at the prompting of a colleague I hosted a Planetary Alignment Party to take a look at the grouping of Jupiter, Venus and the Moon in the night sky. At 4:30 I carried two sets of binoculars and a smallish telescope out to the elementary school courtyard and began setting up. At 5:00 we opened up the snacks, and spent the evening with students from preschool to high school, with teachers and administrators, observing the heavens above. It was quite a successful evening; pictures follow:

Call your friends!

Oh yeah, astronomy!

I'm hoping to have the Observatory open for business in the coming two weeks; crossing my fingers. I'll let you know (if you're the Megan I think you are...).
