As you go up Mt. Lemmon in Arizona, you can feel how the temperature changes from a hot desert like climate to a cool forest full of green and pine trees.
We started our day in with the amazing views of ski resort cable car ride, it was cool, green and serine. After a 30min ride up the hill and back we proceeded to our main goal, the observatory at the SkyCenter in Mt. Lemmon.
Once at the meeting point, Ben Novisoff greeted and guided us to the observatory, gave us ample information about the equipment, site, laws of physics and talk to us about celestial bodies and how to view them.
After viewing some celestial bodies during the day, we had lunch at the cafeteria and waited for the night to see even more. During the night-time and using the telescope we had a view of different planets, galaxies and starts. Being able to see Saturn and its rings directly in the telescope was simply stunning.
