Hi All;
My son Lucas is doing a (mandatory) Science Project for Science day at school. He wanted to do something with astronomy. I'm going out with him every night we can. He's tracking Saturn. He's sketching the stars around it every day and watching it move against the stars. He's going to write the whole thing up and draw Saturn onto copies of the charts to see how far it moved over the time period. The Science teacher liked the idea. It's not due till May, so we'll get plenty of sketches and movement. We started Early December. Missed about 8 days in a row around Christmas due to the weather. He's back on track now. We have about 25 sketches showing lots of movement. I'll keep you posted.
That's it;
BOB SAL
