Killarney Provincial Park, Ontario Canada

Astronomy Program III. Nighttime

For me a great attraction of Killarney is its clear dark skies nearly free from light polution. It is a place from which we can do naked-eye astronomy, progress to using binoculars and telescopes to explore our nearby universe. We will do this again this summer. We will see the moon as both an object of great interest and as an annoying source of excessive light. To help plan your observing with or without the moon visit:  :http://www.moonconnection.com/moon_phases_calendar.phtml

My friend, Michael, has given me some of his moon shots from Spring so we can compare the moon's appearance and try to understand the changes.

Try this movie:


And why? Or why not!

I may add more later.
