I see the moon and the moon sees me


Last Saturday, Joan showed you pictures of the astronomers at the Columbia Memorial Space Center on International Observe the Moon Night. I went later that night to also observe the moon and the people observing the moon.

This is Mark, a recent member of the Columbia astronomers. He is giving back a thumb drive to this lady. He has transferred picture files of the moon that he took with his 2000mm telescope. Anyone bringing a flash drive could get these pictures.


This is one of the moon shots I received.

Moon - Tranquility Base

And this is a closeup of Sea of Tranquility, which is where Apollo 11 landed in 1969. I can't see the American flag though.
