10.08 Star Party

On a rare warm and dry Saturday evening in early October 13 people joined hosts Jeremy and Doreen at their home to socialize and get a class in home astronomy. Our hosts did NOT disappoint. We were able to see the moon close up as it was 1 day from being the Full Blood moon. We set eyes upon Saturn and could clearly see the rings along with its moon Titan. We moved on to looking at Jupiter. Seeing the colored bands of the planet and 3 moons. Jeremy has equipment that allows him to look into deep space and see nebulas, galaxies and star clusters come to into view right on his tv. The equipment is set up in his back yard and snaps a series of photos. Over time building a fantastic image of whatever you point it at. Words can’t not adequately describe the beauty of deep space.
