The Astronomy Club views Jupiter, Saturn, and the Moon through our Meade 14 inch telescope

December 9, 2021

The viewing took place outside the Physics building in late October with the department’s largest portable telescope

The Astronomy Club took the department’s 14 inch Meade telescope out for viewing of the night sky.
Department staff members Tom Barnello and Dan Boyd, with help from Astronomy Club president
Jennifer Teissler, set up this gargantuan telescope, then let club members and interested passersby
have a look through it. They saw amazingly crisp views of the craters on the Moon, moons of Jupiter,
and rings of Saturn.
