Enthusiastic Grade 5-6 students of the Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) Grade School: members of the Astronomy Club Astroblu, dropped by the Manila Observatory on September 18, 2017 to assemble Galileoscope telescopes.
They were very excited and focused while they attached the objective lens and put together the optical and focuser tubes of the refractor telescopes. This is part of their club activities to appreciate the wonders of the stars, planets and space.
They also came by earlier in the school year for a demonstration on the moon phases. The Astroblu members were very eager as they saw how the position of the moon determines how much of it is illuminated by the sun.
