Mars Globes

Hand drawn each year by Percival Lowell….I was thrilled to be able to see these little globes up close.  They are normally kept behind glass at the museum, but since we were celebrating Astronomy Day, they were brought out for a brief show.

My other thrill of the evening was viewing Saturn through the Alvan Clark refractor.  Talk about getting an astronomy “buzz”.

I was also honored to be the invited guest speaker so had a great time visiting and talking with the club and the public.
