We’ve been enjoying going to the local observatory for astronomy sessions and recently also went to a Planetarium talk there too. The boys really enjoyed listening to Catherine Crawford (Cambridge Astro Prof) talking about Saturn.

Our three eldest taken with a long exposure (so you can see the stars) and ‘painted’ with a red torch while the picture was being taken.

Another long exposure photo taken at the local observatory – can you spot any constellations

The moon taken through our borrowed 6″ Dobsonian. And below is Jupiter, which hasn’t come out too well – we can see the bands on Jupiter through the scope and the 4 Galilean moons.
