Aquafinas’ Star Adventure

Aquafinas’ Star Adventure

Yesterday the Aquafinas group hiked to the Lemmon Rock fire lookout tower. It was an amazing view of Tucson and the other mountain ranges and it was really fun. On the hike we saw mushrooms, berry bushes, wildflowers, the spring, and burnt trees from the 2003 Aspen fire. In the evening we used the Phillips 24″ telescope to look at ring nebulas, the Andromeda Galaxy, the star Vega, and the multiple star system Lyra, the Double Double.
