Last week I wrapped up the Astronomical League’s Lunar 1 program. Today when I got home from work my girlfriend told me I had gotten something really cool in the mail. Lo and behold, my certificate and pin for Lunar 1! This is my first AL program I have completed and I really enjoyed it. The program has given me a new interest in the Moon and lunar observation as a whole while also acquainting me with many lunar features. I will be working on the Lunar 2 program next. Lunar 1 took me approximately 30 observing hours over the past year and a half. The binocular targets I found were the most difficult, due to the small image scale using my 8x40’s. Lunar 2 will require me to sketch... uh oh, LOL.
Clear and steady skies for all!
