Star struck

The other night Mom and Dad took a tour up to the top of Mauna Kea.
The peak of this mountain is the premiere spot to see the stars in the
WORLD! In order to see such beauty they had to brave sub-freezing
temperatures but it was well worth it.

After viewing the sunset and getting a tour of some of the super
serious telescopes, they trekked down the mountain for a tour of the
night sky. One of the sights was a "binary star" system made up of an
older star and a younger star. The tourguide called this the "michael
Douglas and zeta-jones" system.

I am very disappointed that they did not see the Dogstar. Hmph.

Just so you know - I am doing well with Nana and Pops in Maine. Riley
is still behaving himself and is looking forward to spending the
weekend with his buddy Mr. Jack Russell (human).
