Lick Observatory
Back to Home Page.
We went to Lick Observatory to view the stars and moon upclose through a high power telescope.
Here is the entrance to Lick Observatory. It is located way up in the hills.  Driving up there can be quite exhausting.

Karen's smarter.  She's looking into the telescope.
We were able to see the moon up close through the telescope.  We used our camera and put it up to the lens to take this picture.
