On a personal note, we spent the weekend in Flagstaff, and Bug got to see Mars through a 16″ telescope, and he got to see the Orion Nebula through the Clark Telescope, which showed him 8 baby stars and the glowing green gas of the nebula.

My Portuguese is a little rusty, but I’m pretty sure the name of the place translates to “Meat Coma”.
