November 24, 2015 – Divine Child High School Astronomy Club had its first star gazing event. Five students and a very committed moderator braved the sub- freezing Michigan temperatures to attend the event that took place on the campus football field at 6 a.m.

“A person starts to live when he can live outside himself” – Albert Einstein once said. The DCHS Astronomy club lives up to this as they go outside their comfort zone and venture into the realm of space.

The mission was to observe Jupiter, the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest in the solar system. Co-club President Emerson Merem stated “ The experience was amazing , I was able to observe Jupiter and its four Galilean moons… and that was really cool .” She also went on to say: “ I was also really surprised because in addition we [ the group] also saw Venus .”

This star gazing event was made possible by an alumni who recently donated a high powered telescope to Divine Child .
