Unfortunately the weather let us done again, but still a couple of hundred people turned up hoping to view the Moon and Jupiter through our telescopes. Even though we were not able to see much of the sky we spend a lot of time talking with many people about the night sky.

The children just loved looking through the telescopes even through it was just at the clouds 🙂
