McGuffey’s Upper Unit welcomed Aaron Eiben of the Cincinnati Observatory last Thursday night for our Star Party. Aaron brought two large telescopes and star maps for everyone. He guided students and parents through viewing the moon, several planets, stars, star clusters, and even two galaxies. Many parents and students also brought their own telescopes from home, and Mr. Eiben offered tips on getting the most out of each type of telescope.
We all enjoyed hot cocoa and good viewing during the brisk, clear fall evening and night. Thanks to Upper Unit Science teacher Susie Lute for organizing this experience.
