My granddaughter, Kate, is very serious about science.  She is fascinated by outer space, loves volcanoes and thinks dinosaurs are all that.  Her Grandpa and I visited with Kate and her family earlier this month.  Her dad (our son) is our dentist and it was time for our 6-month checkup.  (Is that a great excuse for a mandatory visit to the Grands or what!  lol)

While in Tucson we visited one of the observatories at the University of Arizona.  We looked through one of their huge telescopes and saw the famous Ring Nebula.

It looks like this in the textbook:

It looked like this through the telescope:

But it was still really cool!

I found some stickers that fit the occasion and decided to make a quick card and send them to Kate.

Next time we are hoping to go and see Jupiter!!

Thanks for dropping by today.  Happy Crafting!
