Thing1 is back at school for his interim class where he is taking Astronomy. Today they are visiting the Yerkes Observatory in Wisconsin. Tomorrow the Adler Planatarium in Chicago. What a great class!
I wonder if I could tag along as a "responsible adult"? Me? hahaha
For those of you who, like me, enjoy looking at the stars but want to see whats out there without leaving your computer I highly recommend the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Skyserver site. In particular the Famous Places link. I know a few of the people involved in this project and they are producing some amazing images.
