Fellow Astronomers...

The Chicago Astronomers celebrated the first International Sidewalk Astronomy night event by setting up our various telescopes and sharing the views with visitors, answering questions and talking astronomy.

The Venus/Moon conjunction made a great target in the eyepiece, but Saturn & Mercury were there to enjoy too.

The entire narrative along with pics can be found here:

A great success and it was an enjoyable star party session in spite of the bright Chicago skyline.
