Viewing The Heavens in Kalgoorlie, WA

Whether it is Australia or back in the United States, the most unique aspect of of traveling from place to place to share about our team's work back in Taiwan is the opportunity to stay in different homes and get to know lots of different people.

Last week in Kalgoorlie, WA, I stayed with Denise and Peter. Some years ago, Peter built a huge telescope from scratch (pictured in foreground below). It took him nearly a year to plan the design and several months after that to build and fine-tune. He's made it available for the community to come to view from time to time.

He did a great job in the construction---  Peter was able to clearly point out to me  3 of Jupiter's moons as well as the twin stars Alpha-Centauri, not to mention the densest section of the Milky Way.


The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge.  Psalm 19: 1-2
