Great short video showing people's reactions to seeing the moon through a telescope.

People have the capacity to be wowed by astronomy. We just have to take them away from their iPhones for just a moment.

Exactly why I do it.

 

I was able to pull a fellow teen(probably 16 or 17) away from her phone to look at the moon, and she ended up staying for a good 45 minutes to get more looks!

 

It's always amazing to see a first timer's reaction.
