Thanks to a tip from an astronomy teacher friend, I found out it's a great time to check out the night sky. (I've also read about some strange astronomical events
going on right now.) I broke out the telescope tonight and spent the evening in the backyard enjoying the clear skies and warm temperature. First I found Jupiter with its moons neatly lined up beside it. Then with some help from skp and some star maps, we found Saturn, rings and all. We all see this stuff on television and in pictures, but there's something satisfying about seeing it with your own eyes through your own effort. If you have a telescope, I hear tomorrow is supposed to be the best time to see Saturn this year.
