Saturn with the Scouts

Saturn on 5/20/08

Tonight, my oldest son’s boy scout troop came over to our house and I started working through the Astronomy Merit Badge. There were 10 boys that came tonight and we had a really productive night mostly working with Starry Night software projected on the wall since it was too bright for the telescope. I finally set up the scope about 8:30 but it was still bright out – the sky was light blue. I got lucky though and was able to find Saturn. I think the parents were more excited than the kids to see it. Anyway, a nice night.
