Rain, Rain, Go Away!

The weather in South Bend this week has not lent itself well to outdoor sky observations.  That has left the Astro group here at NDQC with a little less to do than they would like.  They are, however, finding ways to learn during the day by observing online sky charts and such.

They have been doing many different online activities ranging from observing live sky charts to playing online constellation matching games.  They also have been going to museums to learn various items about astronomy.  Last week they had the opportunity to go to the Adler Planetarium in Chicago (below) which was an extremely valuable experience.

Despite the weather, this week has been an educational affair for the students and hopefully will enable them to be even better off when they are able to actually get outside.  The weather is beginning to look a bit more promising for this group so hopefully they can get out there soon.
