Astronomy Night Shines

It was a beautiful, clear night on November 11 and over 100 Emerson students and parents gathered to gaze at the spectacle of the sky.  Astronomy Night was a sparkling success!

Eight members of the University Low Brow Astronomers visited the school and set up their telescopes, and what delights the heavens yielded – the moon in fantastic detail, Jupiter with four moons visible, the “Ring” nebula, M-13 star cluster, binary stars, and other celestial stars.

Many thanks to Tim Wilson, Emerson Middle School science teacher, for arranging this “stellar” evening.
