St. Michael's College Observatory

Thank you to the many families who were able to make it our evening trip to the St. Michael's College Observatory. Although we had to visit during daylight (as our winter trip had to be cancelled due to large amounts of snow!), we were still able to see high-tech telescopes and go into the dome of the observatory to view the moon. We (re-)learned that it was a waxing gibbous moon that evening--it had been a while since we wrapped up our unit on the night sky. :-) Some lucky students were able to see craters on the moon!
