On Wednesday, Jan. 24, fourth grade students from Mountain Vista School in Oracle visited Michael Weasner at the Cassiopeia Observatory. The kids used the EclipseView 114 telescope to look at the moon and the Great Nebula in Orion. The EclipseView 114 telescope was donated to the class by Meade Instruments. This was the second night visit to the observatory. The students visited on Jan. 21. The visits were part of a science lesson.
