Awesome is an overused word these days, but it certainly describes star gazing in Sedona.
The setting was great - so quiet and dark - and the person giving the lecture did a great job. The Milky Way was in full view, along with lots of constellations (pointed out with a laser that made the night sky look like a giant overhead blackboard) and meteors. Looking in the telescopes brought oohs and aaaahs.
We got lots of science along with Greek mythology. More amazing things than you can really take in - the distances, the scale of time (ok, same thing in light years!) and the forces at work. Can you really think about gravity holding together binary stars that are millions of miles apart? Or how a black hole is born? Stretches my brain and my sense of wonder.
Thanks to our hosts and to our luck for a beautiful night and beautiful experience!
PS. We are from Minnesota, so when they say "dress warmly" we do!
