Launch Pad: Day 3, Wednesday

While it was cloudy, we were still able to see some starry matter on the roof of the astronomy building. I viewed the Moon, Venus, Jupiter (and four moons), Andromeda, a couple sets of binary stars, and a nebula (whose name I've forgotten). The sky was achingly beautiful.


The roof was a gorgeous viewing area.



Even with the annoying sidewalk lights below glaring light pollution, which the university didn't see fit to shade.



I turned my flash off so as not to annoy and blind my fellow workshopees, so my pictures are somewhat blurry. Trade-offs.
