Hoober Observatory Visit

Friday night the boys went with some of the home ed group on  a visit to the Hoober Observatory.  As their dad was up for the weekend, he took them.

Fortunately, they got there early and managed to catch the only break in the cloud to see the moon.  Daniel was astounded by the amount of detail they could see.  The lack of visibility didn't seem to dampen any one's enthusiasm for the visit.

They had a slide show about the universe and different galaxies and a tour around the observatory.  It must have been good, Daniel wants to go back.  Even better, he would love to have tens of thousands of pounds to set up his own.
