McDonald Observatory

After enjoying a serenade by Victor from the Mexican side of the Rio Grande, we left Big Bend to return to Fort Davis and the McDonald Observatory. We spent the night with an Astronomer (well not ALL night – he stayed up looking at the stars and we went to sleep).

We learned how solar systems are born and what happens when stars die. They let us look through the telescope at a star being born and a different star dying. Unfornately, they would not let Charlie look for space junk on the moon so he was a little disappointed.
