Woodland Elementary Camp Out

A beautifully clear night in June at last! Our first time setting up the Mobile Observatory on grass had its challenges, but the night sky was worth it.

We had the solar system tour going at the back of the trailer for the group waiting to look through the telescope. For most of the night we were looking at Jupiter, which was spectacularly clear. Late in the evening Saturn got high enough in the sky that we could switch over and get a nice look at the rings.
