Here we are (Theresa pointing, Superboy looking, JBug shivering, Grandma looking on, Dad taking the picture) up on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Mt. Mitchell. We took our star gazers and went hunting for Draco. It was so exciting to actually see the constellation we had been reading about! It took us awhile, but we were able to identify Polaris, the Big Dipper, Draco, and Perseus. The moon was bright so the southern sky was washed out, and it started clouding up on us, but we were thankful to be able to meet our goal of finding Draco using our star gazers. Made us wish we knew more about the stars and how to identify them. What fun!
