I saw some really cool things in the telescopes.
The very first thing I got to see was the moon. Now you might be all like whats so special about the moon? Well have you ever seen it in a telescope before? You get to see all kinds of the features of the moon. It was really neat. (This picture isn't quite what it looked like.)
The second thing I got to see was this double star named Albireo. It is called a double star because it is two stars that actually rotate around each other. I saw them exactly how this picture is. The star on the top is blue and is hotter. The star on the bottom is kinda red and I believe is actually a supernova. A supernova is similar to our sun, but I doubt there are any planets around it.
The third thing I got to see was the ring nebula. It didn't look quite like this in the telescope though b/c the moon was very bright. Some people often call the ring nubula the eye of god b/c it looks like an eye. Personally it remindes me of The Lord of the Rings
The last thing I saw was the Andromeda galaxy. Again it was very fuzzy b/c of the moon. I have always wanted to see this galaxy b/c it is supposed to be similar to our own galaxy, which could support life, and isn't that far away from us. I might go back again just to see this better.
I went outside at 11:00 pm ish to see the lunar eclipse. It won't be a total lunar eclipse in north america until March 2007. I hope if you didn't see it this time you'll remember a couple of years from now. He.
And as a bonus some of the Astronomy club guys were pretty good to check out too. But they probably got their heads in the clouds (LOL, I made a joke, he he).
BTW: Listen to my music if you get a chance listen to it. I even can play it for you. I hope you can see why all this reminds me of this song when you hear it.
