Fan Mountain 2

Skies were clear, but lines were too long to look through the telescopes. But we did look through some smaller telescopes set up by local amateur astronomers. And we learned about the upcoming Transit of Venus!

The road to Fan Mountain
No pictures! (it was dark). Plus it rained and snowed so we didn’t get to look through the telescopes. But we did get an interesting tour of the equipment.
