Sanborn Central astronomy class observes the skies

    The Astronomy class at Sanborn Central got a special treat as they went to the DWU Observatory on Saturday, Dec. 1. The weather was absolutely perfect for the outing.
Dr. Farney, a DWU professor, helped the students observe four different galaxies, star clusters, binary star systems, an imploded star and stunning observations of the moon and Jupiter.  The students were able to see the banding patterns on Jupiter, along with a couple of Jupiter’s larger moons.
The students were allowed to look through two different telescopes and two large binocular pieces.
The Observatory is a wonderful opportunity provided to the public at no cost and was greatly enjoyed by the astronomy class.
