Man in the moon: Oxford astronomy professor Jim Honeycutt visited the AP physics class at Newton High School Tuesday with microscopic samples of lunar rock and soil. He gave a short presentation about lunar features as well as basic information about meteors, asteroids and comets. The International Astronomical Union has declared 2009 the International Year of Astronomy.
