4/18 - Saturn & Almost M3 in Inwood Hill Park
Went out (scope free!) to Inwood Hill Park to join Jason Kendall and the Inwood Astronomy Project for a night with the skies. After finding parking easily (a blessing in the area), I trekked to the top of the hill, finding no one. Turned out Jason had set up on the baseball field at the bottom of the hill, which was fortuitous, as the clouds broke just as we met up with him. Had a great time chatting with Jason and viewing Saturn. (Almost saw M3, which I have been missing lately - didn't blog about those viewing sessions!) Thanks to my wife for joining me tonight!
