The Cape Cod Astronomical Society came to STEM the evening of March 6 (probably the coldest night of the year!). They brought two telescopes and motion stabilizing binoculars. About 12 students and their families came out and braved the brutal cold to get some looks at the night sky. It was worth it, as we saw a nebula around Orion's belt, Pleiades (7 Sisters) star cluster, two stars making up Polaris (North Star), Sirius (brightest star), and Mars. We hope we can make this happen again, when it warms up a bit!
