100 Hours of Astronomy - Day 4

How was your day 3 of the 100 hours of Astronomy? Mine was largely clouded out. In the spirit of Galileo's 400th anniversary of looking through a telescope, and in the sprit of doing alittle more than just looking up, why not do some sketching? The Moon is bright and is showing plenty of craters, so this is a good time to sketch the Moon.

All you need is a paper some pencils and, say a pair of binoculars. Galileo's scope wasn't much more powerful than this. It can be a bit difficult to hold binoculars and sketch at the same time, so use the back of a chair or table to stabilise the binoculars. Have a go, you will see how much fun it can be!
