Cadiz, CA -- Dylan Wood couldn’t wait to see the surface of the sun.
The West Hills 4-year-old fidgeted quietly while his brother, Auden, 8, looked through a telescope set up by amateur astronomers Saturday, April 30 at Cadiz Ranch east of Amboy.
When the older boy was finished, his eager brother scrambled up a small step ladder and fixed his eye to the lens.
“I saw a big red dot,” he exclaimed, smiling from ear to ear, adding proudly, “I’m almost 5.”
