A trip to Yerkes

Thing1 called last night from Lake Geneva. They had stopped on the way home to get coffee for the trip home. They were blessed with a clear night and were able to view Saturn as well as some star clusters with the large telescope at Yerkes. To quote Thing1 the guide was a "riot" as he combined astronomy with humor and movie trivia (20 minutes of Chain Reaction was shot at Yerkes) during the tour.
