The moon was quite bright, but that didn’t stop us from catching some amazing views of the sky!
We had the pleasure of hosting about 30 visitors; some campers, some local residents.
Jupiter was showing off all four of its Galilean Moons right in a line. And, always drawing plenty of oooos and aaaahs to even the most experienced astronomer, Saturn was up too (it’s not often we get to see both of the giant planets in the same night).
We also saw the fascinating naked-eye double, Mizar and Alcor in the handle of the Big Dipper.
Of course, with the moon so bright, we couldn’t pass up in taking a close-up view of its craters, ridges and mountains.
