Last night Aidyn and David went stargazing in both our backyard and front yard. According to David, they both watched the night sky and made simple observations about what they saw. They talked about the moon, its shape, and the idea of it seeming to "follow" them. They also pointed out twinkling stars. I was indoors madly reading The Duchess of Malfi in order to finish it on time, so I missed out on the stargazing. However, I talked with an "astronomically" knowledgable coworker today about stargazing, and she provided excellent tips! Tonight we will all go out and spend some time observing the night sky.
