M&M child care owns three telescopes. The children get to use the telescopes in the backyard and on field trips.
From the backyard we have observed sunspots, partial solar eclipses, and the crash of Comet Shoemaker - Levy into Jupiter. We have also seen most of the planets, plus star clusters, galaxies and nebulae.
