“Matthaei by Moonlight” at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens

Setting Up Telescopes at Matthaei Botanical Gardens
(August 5, 2000).

From time to time, the University of Michigan’s Matthaei Botanical Gardens hold special events called “Matthaei by Moonlight.” At these events the Lowbrows set up telescopes that visitors can look through.

John and Mark are in the process of setting up and aligning the telescopes. They had to contend with clouds during the evening. Later on rain showers developed and they had to scramble to dismantle the equipment.
