No stars in the sky this year

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

Kinder­garten stu­dents from Jardin-des-Fron­tières school did not get the chance to peak at the sky, last Fri­day, through the te­le­scope of Bruno Cas­tonguay as the weather was block­ing even the moon from sight. Yet melt­ing marsh­mal­lows on a roast­ing fire is the clos­est ex­per­i­men­ta­tion of what the sun is: too close, they burn with a char­coal crust; too far, they re­main cold. In a way, this could have been the best science pro­ject of the year. Mr. Cas­tonguay, who chron­i­cles the sky for us at the Stanstead Jour­nal, was host­ing the event for the sec­ond year.
