La Luna

We have been getting emails from Viola's grandfather with photographs of the moon.  He has a high power telescope and has been taking photos each night, that is when it hasn't been cloudy.  Here are the ones I received the past two days that I did not get a chance to show the class.
I hope you and your child have enjoyed watching the moon wax and wane.

"Took this shot quickly as I ran out this morning!  I allowed the light that was reflecting off the moon to show up much more prominently so that the "dark" part of the moon would also be visible.  a good example of how the moon is all there however we can only see the part the sun is shining on and reflecting back!  Also notice stars in background. First day we did not have clouds for last 3-4 days."
