TreviThe past two blogs I've posted described the Vatican Observatory Summer School and its activities. What a tremendous group of students — I had a wonderful time visiting with them, seeing the Vatican Observatory's treasures, and meeting the skilled faculty who lead these grad students in their quest for knowledge. Each year at the VOSS, the students study hard, but they also have an opportunity to absorb a bit of Italian culture by traveling to some of that nation's greatest cities. While in Rome, I visited quite a few historical sites that contain glimpses of antiquity. I'll share a few of the images I captured here.
