One comment on “Astronomy on the High Seas

  1. Well, what fun! Wish I were along! We were out on Thanksgiving and watched the space shuttle and the space station go over (found the time/location on the internet). We pointed them out to the friends we were with and explained the difference between planes (blinking lights) and orbiting objects (steady, reflected light). A short time later one little girl (about 4) in the group spotted a satellite – I think we got us a future astronomer!
