Stargazing: The Current Night Sky- Age 6-8 & 9-12
This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.
Are you curious about the night sky? Do you want to know how to find the Big Dipper, the North Star and other special objects when you look up on a clear night?
Together we will view the current night sky in a digitalized planetarium dome, set up inside, where you'll feel like you are outside at night looking at a perfect sky! In our time together, we will explore the current night sky constellations, star-hopping as the stories and legends of several cultures unfold on our journey.
Learn how to locate special stars, constellations and other objects in space while we talk about the science and stories of our spectacular night sky.
Come to one or more of the dates offered for viewing, learning, and discussing the different night skies in the different seasons. Each season will be different.
