A group of about 30 Pentucket Elementary 1st to 4th grade students, parents, and staff attended a star party. Following Brewster LaMacchia’s presentation, the group headed outside to observe (and encountered a wait while the lights were being shut off as well as several cars with bright headlights to leave. Unfortunately the clouds had other ideas and the only visible target was Jupiter. The kids enjoyed the event anyway, and green laser pointers are always a good trick.
Thank you to John Gall, Kevin Ackert, and Bryan Stone for bringing scopes to the event.
