Viewing the Heavens

TheStarsHave you ever gone outside late at night or in the early morning hours and gazed towards the heavens? Oh what a sight to behold! To see Jupiter, the Big Dipper, Orion's Belt, and Cassiopeia shining brightly. Have you ever wondered what the moon's craters look like? Thanks to the Omaha Astronomy Club, about 75 parents and students of St. Mary's School got an up close look of all these celestial gems. Students, siblings and parents were blessed with clear skies and great temperatures for their night viewing. Looking through four telescopes everyone got to see the moon's craters, Jupiter's four moons, various stars and constellations. It was a great Science lesson, one that came alive thanks to John Johnson and the other astronomers.
