(1) “I want a  million dollars.”

Poof!  A million dollars.

(2) “And a Jaguar convertible.”

Poof!  A Jaguar convertible.

(3) “Last wish.  Hmm . . . I know!  Make me  irresistible to all women.”

Poof!  The genie turned him into a box of chocolates.

Tonight, we are going to Sidewalk Astronomy to observe Saturn, the ringed planet!

Sponsored by the local chapter of Deep Sky Observers, the event will allow the public to star-gaze through high-powered telescopes at the night sky:

This is a dark sky event since the Moon will not be up making it possible to see fainter targets like galaxies and nebulas.

Here’s hoping for a clear night, with no clouds to obscure our view!
