I've always wondered what was hidden behind that mysterious gate on North Territorial. I learned a lot last night from all of the hobbyist and professional astronomers who brought out their big telescopes to look at the "double-double" (two double stars of Lyra), Saturn (with the ring and all), globular and open clusters, and three other galaxies. Thank you to everyone for being so willing to share what you know and to show off your technology!
