On Nov. 6,  Henniker Community School fifth graders and their parents enjoyed a Night Sky Observation with New England College math and physics Professor Tod Ramseyer.

Dr. Ramseyer shared both his telescope and knowledge answering questions about Jupiter, Saturn, the moon, and some binary stars of multiple colors. Ramseyer earned his Ph.D. in  astronomy from the University of Texas, and astronomy research is one of his personal interests.
