At the stargaze on 2/12 we saw many constellations among other astronomical objects. I saw several satellites orbiting and we also were able to see Venus and Jupiter with the naked eye. We were able to see Jupiter through the telescope along with a good picture of the Pleides. A few constellations we saw were Taurus, Orion, Auriga, Gemini, Cassiopeia, Andromeda, Pegasus and part of the Big Dipper rising in the north (?). In addition we saw Ursa Minor, Aries, Perseus, Monoceros, Eridanus, Fornax, and Canis Major. It was a successful stargaze because I was able to identify a lot more than I was able to previously so I know I have improved.
