ARIZONA STAR TALES - NOTE: Until further notice, all events have been cancelled and no requests are being accepted at this time due to the pandemic
We were a part of the South Mountain Environmental Education Center's monthly 'Full Moon Walk' by providing a remote TV monitor view of the Full Moon using our refractor telescope and astronomical video camera at the end of their Ranger lead walk through the park where the wonders of the desert night were discussed. They even used ultraviolet lights to find scorpions! As we were looking at the monitor, a jet flew right in front of the Full Moon! I took a quick phone camera shot of the monitor screen. Those jet contrails were very unique to see against the Moon! Whenever we're at the center, something always exciting happens!
