Sunset from Science B

My first trip onto the roof of Science B of the University of Calgary was timed nicely with a gorgeous sunset…

… here you can see (what I think it is anyway) the ski jump that Eddie the Eagle must have jumped off back in the 1988 games.
I didn’t just go on the roof to look at the sunset, though it was probably worth it just for that, but to also do a bit of astronomy. There was a class on and I tagged along for the start and helped setup the scope (they were investigating the size of craters on the Moon) and took this pic:

Not a bad setup really..
