BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The stars came out to shine at Franklin Elementary School on Thursday night.
Walter Albrecht is a teacher there and a member of the Kern Astronomical Society. He said every year he and his colleagues bring out telescopes after school when the sky is clear to give students a chance to see the moon and stars a little closer.
Students said they were excited to be able to see the craters on the moon and eager to find out if they would catch a comet fly by.
The school's booster club was also there selling popcorn, snow cones, and water to raise money for future field trips.
