Out of this world
We were all blown away when we went to the roof of Carr Hall to look at stars and planets. As Nick 3 put it, it was out of this world. We saw five different planets. Mars, Saturn, Mercury, Venus, and of course, Earth. We then went to the Newton Observatory and got to see a giant antique telescope. We got to see the moon through it and it was so clear, you could see the craters. Then we went outside and saw two satellites going by. We then looked at clusters of starts through the telescope. It was a great experience.
