A good year, no doubt!! Decided to get back to amateur astronomy a few months ago. What a great way to spend time with my kids.

Got my niece a lower-end but decent model telescope for Christmas. We had one when we were kids, some of my best memories involve being outside in chilly, clear weather, scanning the sky, looking at moon craters and roasting marshmallows. We lived out past the glow of the streetlights, but even that was muted compared to today. Those old bluish mercury vapor lights just didn’t interfere as much. Maybe blue spectrum actually is better than red for night lighting, who’d a thunk, lol.
