photo fail

So guess what this is?

tonight's picture

If you said ‘the sun’ you’d sort of be right, in that the sun’s light is what you’re seeing, but that was the moon, past 8pm tonight (read: totally dark) as I hurried to try to take a few pictures while keeping my kids from knocking over some generous people’s super-expensive telescopes. Gotta work on that. My Boston skyline ones came out a bit better, but still need some practice.

Boston at night in AprilWe brought the kids up to see the night sky after bedtime to complement the school work we’ve done about planets. Members of the local astronomy club shared their telescopes and let us look at the planets and moon! It was actually really hard to look at the moon though because it was almost full and so very bright. They were able to see Jupiter, Mars and the moon.
