Description

This one was a collaboration. 🙂 My 7 year old daughter came out with me Thursday night. Really the first time it was feasible, now that the planet is rising earlier and lining up better with her bed time. She held the hand controller and pressed the buttons to manually compensate for the polar alignment error. I told her it was a video game! She did a terrific job, and we shared some nice time together. ♥️
