A Night in Sierra Vista

One of the reasons we brought the Galileo telescope Matt gifted our first visit was because of the clear skies in Arizona. Now was the time to get it set up and get a great view of the full moon.

Matt brought the telescope out and set it up to see the bright moon...

... then we took turns being amazed.

After my turn viewing the moon I decided to get some pictures of the home across the swimming pool...

... because I love the reflections.

Matt developed a tradition after every success, lighting an expensive cigar...

... and having a glass of Port wine...

... tonight it was to celebrate the clear sky...

... though not totally clear. However, something Matt pointed out was that with the telescope you could see the moon through the clouds, amazing.

I took a few more pictures this one with the fence around the pool, the Musemobile and the Pool House that holds the pool pump and equipment for the pool and yard.

It is a very nice Pool house and a very nice pool.

Finally I took a picture from the fence nearest the Musemobile. Then Matt went out on an invitation from the man he works for and a few other people. We had run into him at the Texas Roadhouse when we were out for dinner.

No Scrabble just moon gazing tonight.

Quote of the Day ~
"I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use." ~Galileo Galilei

Stephen Hawking says, "Galileo, perhaps more than any other single person, was responsible for the birth of modern science."
