Last night John Furlong and I set up at Camp Derricotte for the Lewis and Clark

5th graders. John had the 100x25 binocs and I took my Coulter 13.1" Dob and WO

110mm APO refractor. The first group of kids came out at 7:30 and looked at the

Moon. They were treated to the ISS. I looked for the IR flare but never saw it.

Venus was in the trees by the time we were set up and Jupiter never climbed

above the trees. The second and third groups got to see Albireo and M22 in

addition to the Moon. In total we had about 110 kids and supervisors. Clouds

crept in shortly before 9:00 and we were packed up and gone by 9:20.
