Val Germann of the Central Missouri Astronomical Association guides Gunnar Carlow, 6, so he can see Saturn through a Newtonian Reflector telescope on a clear night sky outside the Columbia Public Library on Friday. After the telescope exhibition, Germann used a laser pointer to point out different stars and constellations that were visible to the naked eye.
