When we heard that there was going to be an eclipse, we decided to get out our old telescope. We had to take the whole thing apart and clean it, but it was definitely worth it. And now we have it out to gaze at stars.
I don't know if any of you caught the eclipse, but it really was pretty spectacular, especially with the moon being so close to the Earth and therefore so big. The kids loved it.
I managed to get some photos of the whole thing, although the zoom on the camera doesn't do it nearly the justice of a telescope!
