Astronomy sightings with an 8 year old

Jackson and I went out tonight to see if we could find Mars. Thanks to Heavens-above we were able to quickly locate Mars, and the Gemini Twins. We thought about documenting what we found and when we found it.

So he is the starting list

Previous Identified:

Moon, Big Dipper Usra Major, Little Dipper (Usra Minor), Orion

Sometime after Christmas before tonight.

Aries, Jupitor, Venus (actually few years ago)

  1. I’ve been into astronomy since I was 6 and showed my 5 year old Venus, Jupiter and the Moon on Saturday night. We were using my telescope. He thought the moons of Jupiter were cool but he literally gasped and said “wow!” when he saw the Moon LOL You can’t beat that 😀

    I wrote about it on my own blog, if you’re interested – http://thelastsongiheard.wordpress.com/2012/03/03/come-take-a-trip-in-my-airship-natalie-merchant/

    Clear skies!
