Shortly after sunset, Ducky, Ted, and Blizzard ran to the the library to ask Pembleton if it was time to use the telescope. After looking at the clock on the wall, Pembleton said it was time.

They went on the patio and carefully set up the telescope.

First Pembleton used the view finder to locate the north star. Once the telescope was in position, he adjusted the focus so that the view was crystal clear. “Who wants to go first?” Pembleton asked.

“Me! Me!” shouted Blizzard. But Blizzard was to short to reach the eye piece. Ducky had to retrieve a stool from the mudroom. Then Ducky lifted him up on to the stool and Blizzard was able to see.

“WOW! There are so many stars! They are HUGE! It’s unbelievable.” Blizzard shouted with excitement.

“My turn! My turn!” Ted yelled as he jumped up and down.

They each took turns as Pembleton explained the different constellations and planets.

As they were winding down, Pembleton explained “Some scientist believe that most stars have their own planets, much like the Sun, but they are hard to see because they do not produce enough light like stars do. This is what I want to study.”

Part 1 A Mystery Package

Part 2 What’s in the Package?

With Halloween only 12 days away, Ducky and the gang are already in the holiday spirit. Last night they decided to watch one of their favorite Halloween movies, Casper the Friendly Ghost.  Earlier that day, Ducky had to take a physical education test where he had to run, do jumping jacks, and somersaults. Ducky was quite exhausted and was heavy eyed during the movie. Before he knew it, he was snoozing.

In his dream, he saw four super cute ghosts in front of a large house. The first one who was quite round said “I’m hungry.” The second ghost, who was tall and thin, said “Tonight is a great night to use my telescope. Look at how full the moon is.” The two little ghosts just giggled and waved as they chased each other. When Ducky woke up, he wondered why the ghost from his dream were so familiar, but then he realized he was hungry. So he went and got a snack.

“I’m hungry, can ghosts eat?”
