Last week, we got together with some friends for a little stargazing session, in an attempt to view the Pan-STARRS Comet that is visible in the Northern Hemisphere through the end of March. Our local paper suggested viewing from a western position, hopefully without trees, buildings, and lights in the way. We headed to our city’s soccer fields about dusk, and our photographer-friend brought along his camera with a very powerful lens. Ryan photographed the event while I supervised the boys’ rock hunting expedition.
We never did see the comet that night, and our friend climbed to a much higher point the next evening, still to no avail. But we had a wonderful time, and made a few sweet memories for the boys.
