Updates

Greetings star gazers how are you all?
It has been quite a while since my last post and a lot has happened since then.
First I would like to know how was national astronomy day for you? If you have any pictures please feel free to post any as you wish. I have been extremely fortunate to have been accepted into my planetarium here as a volunteer intern. I have been doin this since last month and I really have been a bit busy with school, my part time job at a library and of course the daily routine. At this internship I have been learning how to use telescopes that are bigger than myself and in the process of it I have made good friends. If it wasn't for writing about these events happening in our skies today I wouldn't of gone for this opportunity or at least i didn't know it existed until I did some research and here I am.
Now as for updates let me tell you the moon has been in its first quarter this past weekend it has been looking gorgeous, and Saturn let me tell you it is looking great right now as well.
How you find it?
That's simple in the constellation of Leo there are three stars one of them being Regulus right next to it is Saturn to make it a bit much simpler find the moon to the left of the moon or the right depending on your direction adjacent to it will be three stars that form a right triangle the brightest looking one that doesn't shimmer is Saturn.
More updates will come as for now I am having a great time and happy to still see that you followers are still with me.

as Mr. Horkheimer always says "keep looking up" and till next time's update.
