Moon Video

Got the telescope and the camera out tonight -- it was a beautiful night for stargazing.  The moon was out at first quarter, and Jupiter and its moons were out and shining brightly too.  We saw four moons at 8:00 when we first spotted it through the telescope, and when I came back at 10:40 I saw only 3, so I think one is in transit behind or before the planet.  But our moon made for some good viewing.  Below is a video clip of what it looks like through the telescope.

  1. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy star- and moon- and planet-gazing... This was SO much fun last night, thanks for getting the telescope out, even if it was difficult finding Jupiter. :)
