I try to get to the Keystone Observatory at least twice a year in the spring. It is only a few miles from our home and a great way to think about all things extraterrestrial.

Last night I took my nephew Ethan. We saw Jupiter with four of its moons (one of which was transiting Jupiter), Saturn and two of its moons, Castor and Pollux (binary stars part of the Gemini constellation), and the Eskimo Nebula. We had a blast.

Ethan was very excited to see Jupiter since he had to settle for Saturn when I took him last year. He wasn’t disappointed this year and the view of Jupiter was amazing.

We couldn’t have asked for a better night.

I’m looking forward to going again this year. If you’ve got an Observatory near you I highly recommend getting out and seeing what is going on in our universe.
