Hey, Jeffro. Reporting on my first observatory experience.

It was definitely interesting but the telescope at the Drake observatory is over 100 years old so it's pretty much nothing compared to what you'd see at a modern Observatory.

We started off with an hour lecture on "The women of astronomy" and there impact on what we know about astronomy today. Aparently they were like computers before we had computers.
The dude giving the lecture was no Carl Sagan but he knew his shit.

I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty sure my lady was bored out of her skull up until we got to look through the telescopes. They had two smaller telescopes on the roof and the one big one in the main room of the observatory.
We had clear skys and minimal light pollution so I guess we picked a good night. Unfortunately we just got to look at a few stars through the telescopes, which was kind of a bummer because they still look like tiny dots even with a huge a telescope. I'll probably go again in a few weeks when they look at the planets. Can't beat a free nigth at an observatory. Looking forward to trying it out again.

Have a good one dude.
