March 4 Moon Occults Aldeberan

I wasn't real prepared.... but I was out at the Observatory and had my camera to capture this awesome occultation of Aldeberan by the Moon <3

Witte Observatory Complex =)

I haven't posted in a while..... but rest assured I'm getting closer to using the new Feather Touch Focuser I bought.  I'm working on getting a shoe so I can mount my Star Sense (I'm lost without it...) then I'll need some clear dark skies ;)

In the mean time, here's a link to our Witte Observatory new Facebook page =)

About Me

My photo

I've lived in southeastern Iowa all of my life, now with my wonderful family ~ husband and 3 children. 

I've been teaching science now at the local community college for over 10 year now.  I teach both in the class room and online settings.  I have a passion for ALL PHYSICAL SCIENCE! 

Sometimes I both drift off to sleep and wake up thinking of science.  Science ROCKS ~ but even more so the Creator whose imagination thought up this wonderful universe we call home ROCKS EVEN MORE!  lol
