Saeger Middle School - February 23, 2009

Post date: Feb 28, 2009 4:25:38 AM

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.
