Stargazing with students, teachers,and parents at Mines Elementary School, Quezon City, as part of their Science Camp which aims to develop students’ awareness and appreciation of the beauty of heavenly bodies. Saturn, currently in opposition, presented the best possible view of its rings through a telescope, while the moon was also observed to have dimmed considerably as it enters Earth’s penumbral shadow during the partial lunar eclipse which also occurred during the stargazing activity (April 25-26, 2013).
