On the night of Friday, April 1st. AOYA members and guests spent some valuable quality time observing the magnificent planet Jupiter and many other DSO's. Our kids also were briefed with some information on the celestial objects they were observing through the eyepiece of a Celestron NexStar 8" SE. The gathering was highly educational and fun!
