This week is Moana, the 2016 film by Disney. I thought it would be nice to be able to go star-gazing when it’s not too cold but gets dark a little bit earlier. And this week has great viewing opportunities for Jupiter and Saturn at the beginning of the week (Mon-Wed), along with a full moon.
Here is the link for the downloadable materials. (I hope this works…please let me know if you have any problems so I can fix it!)
