I just read an entry on the Bad Astronomy Blog and it reminded me about the Galileoscope which is a really cool project to build an distribute a smallish telescope in recognition of Galileo’s first views of the heavens.
My order for two just went in. One for me and one as a random gift to a parent, child, or teacher.
It isn’t that expensive ($37 total for me) and it will be a nice thing to have.
Oh, and Happy Friday!
