It was one o'clock in the afternoon. My son came to me with a rather unusual request: "Mama, can you set up the telescope?"
"Dude, it's the middle of the afternoon. What do you think you're going to see out there?"
"Um, I don't know. Can you just please set up the telescope."
"Okay, but don't look at the sun. You'll damage your eyes.''
He agreed not to look at the sun, so I set up the telescope. He spent about fifteen minutes looking through the eyepiece. Then he came inside.
"What did you see?"
"Nothing but blue sky and tree branches," he replied. "I was hoping to see a meteor."
Oh. Better luck next time!
