My husband just posted an article on my blog about the upcoming astronomical conjunctions that will be occurring in July and August.

If you are studying astronomy --or just want a fun reason to get out and look up-- you might want to check this (http://www.teachingstars.com/2012/07/08/conjunction-junction-whats-your-function/) out. It'll be great for naked eye or binocular viewing.

Clear skies everyone!!

Cool stuff. Even if my kids don't wake up to check them all out, I will!

We'll do a star-party night where I'll allow the kids to "camp out" either in the living room or on the floor in their rooms. I figure I will wake them up and (fingers crossed) promptly put them back to bed. Otherwise, it will definitely be a nap day later on. :)
