4-01-09 Luna and Saturn Street Astro
Another family outing to the Marina turned into an educational experience! The Scott entourage get engaged with some serious astronomy with the astro guy. After gleeful views of Luna and Saturn on to questions and presentations. Stephen in the blue t-shirt popped out a question that was so incredible and totally in tune with the evenings observations; " Why does the inner Solar System lack Moons?" This was a incredible question, with a complex answer that involves the whole realm of solar system formation and dynamics of planets and stars. But the Scott clan were up to the task and we tackled this issue with Atlas and Poster presentations which helped to cover this complex issue in easy to understand terms. Then daughter Jesse? asked about life on solar system moons, and Kevin asked about Jupiter's super hot, weird interior structure.....................here we go again! Scott people you made this session too much fun!
