St. Charles County Family Camp Out Night - September 4, 2010
Post date: Sep 5, 2010 8:24:53 PM
Last night (Saturday, September 4, 2010) at Klondike County Park members present were John Furlong, John Sgouros, Tom Richards, Grant Martin, and Jim & Yvonne Roe. The skies and sunset was as beautiful as it was in the Spring; a few pictures were taken during set-up (see slide-show, below). I estimate we had approximately 40-50 guests visit our telescopes. There was a small group from a local high school. They started out as a teacher and 4 or 5 students but I think the students called some friends and later looked like 10 students. Many small children with parents in tow were very excited to get to look through telescopes. Guests were able to view Venus, Neptune, Uranus, Jupiter, M8, M20, M16, M17, M13, M22, M57, M27, M31, M32, M92, M11, M15, M2, M73, M73, and several NGCs. The last members packed up and were out around 12:30.
