Boonshoft Museum's Telescope

So I had no idea that this was a thing, but evidently on Friday nights when the skies are clear, the Boonshoft Museum invited guests to come in for free and look into their giant telescope! It was awesome! While we were there we got to see Saturn, Mars, and the Moon. We also got to go onto the roof and see the giant Friday the 13th full moon, and a satellite flare. The scientists that set up the telescope were of course extremely knowledgeable and explained all sorts of things about space that really blew our minds. I definitely recommend taking the trip out to see space!
