Saeger Middle School - February 23, 2009

posted Feb 27, 2009, 8:25 PM by Jim Twellman
Mark Shea (and family!) and Jim Twellman supported the Saeger MS event tonight, amidst a heavy dose of clouds and light pollution.  Pat also brought the school's 8" Orion dob, for a total of 4 scopes plus a nice set of binos.   I counted 40 people in addition to us, and a few more came late, so anywhere from 40-50 on this event.

We observed a nice crescent Venus, a hint of the Orion nebula, and the double star Gamma Andromeda.  The clouds didn't leave us much room, but we made do showing from 7pm to 8:30 pm or so.
