I have fond memories of sitting out with Katelyn when she would get out her telescope and was learning astronomy … but I do also still enjoy special nights like last night to "try" to capture the amazingly bright and large planets and moon (sometimes I wish I had a telescope but the iPhone skywatching apps are great).
Sunday evening with Mars as close as ever gave a great opportunity to see the "red planet" in all of its color. Saturn at 11:30PM was sharp as could be just to the left of the 3/4 moon here in Cincinnati before the clouds moved back in. Jupiter (mentioned and photographed before) was also as bright as could be … and if it was not for bedtime, I’m sure many other celestial bodies could be check off as well. What great viewing.
