The telescope and the moon

Last night i went to visit a friend with a telescope and we had a great time looking at the moon, stars and Jupiter. Through the telescope i also saw three of Jupiter’s moons, looking like tiny pinpricks of light.

We had clouds to contend with, but our moon just looked so beautiful, even with a few clouds covering it.

The Moon through a telescope

You see it through a telescope and it just hangs in front of your eyes. You totally appreciate that it is a gigantic sphere floating through space around us. It is truly breathtaking to see in 3D. And this was just through a telescope designed for bird watching! I think i will get a proper astronomy telescope and see what we can discover!
