Virtual Planetarium Show for Kids: A Week for Dark Skies
Do your kids love the Planetarium? We do, too—and since we can’t get together under the dome yet, we will bring the Planetarium to you!
This week the sky will be dark and moonless—a good time to look for faint objects like the Andromeda Galaxy and not-so-bright stars. Even so, there are other lights—turned on by humans—that can make the stars hard to see. We’ll be using a planetarium simulator to view the night sky.
Just like programs in the Planetarium, we’ll be able to take questions—this time through chat and comments. Recommended for ages 6–10.
