This year we made a long-overdue trip to the Rainwater Observatory in French Camp, Mississippi (Google that!).
Our Pack 7 Webelos joined us and we were very glad to have a break in the weather after rain (and snow!)
in the recent weeks.
Cold and clear conditions made for great star-gazing and a big jump on astronomy merit-badge.
And we were especially blessed to have the
participation and guidance of The Univerisity of Alabama's renowned expert astronomer, Dr. Bill Keel.
