Look up and discover the wonders of the night sky. From ancient times to the present day, sailors have used the stars and planets to navigate their course. Come on a journey this week that will hopefully develop a curiosity about the great expanse of our universe.

ACTIVITY: Are you addicted to space yet? After reading about the moon and stars, tracking the lunar cycle, making models of the constellations, and going outside for some good old fashioned star gazing, you are all probably begging for a visit to your nearest planetarium or observatory. The Adler Planetarium is closed until further notice because of the pandemic; however, stay in touch by visiting their website.
