Astronomer’s Bug

November 16, 2010

Feature

This is a short note to let people know how to scratch that Astronomy itch by going to the Amador Astronomical Society’s webs site. In case you have a telescope, binoculars, or one eye¬† you can still look at the stars and feel a sense of wonder. Right now, every clear evening and if you have some optical aid, you can not only see Jupiter and its constant display of new surprises, but you can also catch a view of Uranus and Neptune. I was looking at the little gray-greenish disk of Uranus a couple of weeks ago and felt that sense of awe that I felt when I was eleven years old and got my first look through an old telescope in my backyard. Sixty-nine years later the thrill is the same.
