Last night we got out the telescope to do a little stargazing. The moon was nearly full, so we decided to focus on that.
"Mom, check out those craters!" my son said.
I did. It was pretty cool how along the outer edges of the moon, you could get a sense of the depth of the craters. It was like looking at the moon in 3-D.
My son looked again. "I thought there was a man in the moon. I don't see him."
"Maybe he's on the other side."
"Why would he be on the other side?"
"Maybe he needs a nap. It's kind of hard to sleep when the sun is shining on your face."
He thought about that.
"Yeah, I guess even the moon needs to sleep."
