I took the family last night to York University's Observatory to check out some space stuff.
The Observatory hosts free public viewing sessions each Wednesday night (time is dependent upon the season - aka when it gets dark)
We looked at a variety of celestial objects including Saturn (which sort of looked like the picture I've uploaded here, not quite this detailed, but the rings were CLEARLY visible), you could also see dots of light around it that were, in fact, moons of Saturn. We also looked at a star cluster called 'M41', betelgeuse, the Moon, and a Nebula that was formed by a star that had exploded! Neat stuff!
The girl, (I imagine a student / teachers assistant), who lead the viewings was very informative, open to questions and great with the kids...
I think a lot. Some people say I think too much... However, I don't want to be seen as being aloof or pretentious, it's just that I really enjoy philosophical questions and deep thoughts. That's not to say that I don't find pleasure in more down-to-earth or trivial things, like beer and soccer :) I'm happily married with 3 wonderful children. I'm a partner in a technology services company based in Toronto. Myers Briggs says I'm an ENTJ
