It was pretty dark inside the building but I managed to get a few pics on the iPad and a few more with a flash on the other camera. This pic is a model of the solar system made around 1829.
The guided tour was fabulous. We were shown a 3D movie about the universe, then spent about an hour in the planetarium studying the night sky, followed by time in one of the domes. As it was really raining out, we didn't get to look at any stars, but did manage to look at a clock tower about 4 klicks away. This telescope was a 29 cm objective and about ten feet long, and was made in the 1800's. Amazing. The lady who gave all the presentations was an Astrophysicist and really knew her stuff. She has a friend who lives in Winnipeg.
We got back to the hotel about 11:10 and now it's bedtime. Time to pack up tomorrow and get ready to head home Tuesday. A sad day. Hard to believe the time has gone so swiftly. Well good night, mates.
