Boys and their Toys

Did you know you could borrow one of these from the University for free? Me either. Bryan spent the last five weeks or so enjoying glimpses into the evening sky with this beauty. The kids thought it was pretty cool too and they already know far more than their mother about the lights above us. When I peeked through the lens, I thought Saturn looked like a perfect, tiny little sticker.


  1. My husband has a big telescope like that. I didn't know that yours lets you rent them. I wonder if ours does that too. The guys like to go on start trips in the middle of no where and look at all the constellations. I have no idea where things are in the sky but my husband always does.

  2. Oh, I just read Hunger Games. I saw it on the side. What do you think about it so far?

  3. Just for the record, this was a loaner from the Minnesota Astronomy Society, not the university... and it was also pretty awesome.
