This was an absolutely unexpectedly fantastic thing to do, and I'm so glad we did it! The laser pointers that the astronomers use literally reaches into the stars. We got to look into the telescope ten times. We say binary star systems, the moon, the Pleiades, a dead star, a blue nebula, and much more. Once you drive to the location, they line you up in your cars until everyone is there. Then they escort you onto the soccer field of the local high school where seats are waiting. It was chilly when we were there in March, and they even had parkas for everyone! Truly fantastic experience. I highly recommend it!
