The Peterborough Planetarium has been started by just two people with the primary goal to bring an excitement of space and our global environment to kids in Ontario. Being a big fan of outer space and the planet Earth, I think this is great!
Their goal is to introduce kids (and hopefully adults too) to all the amazing things that a love of the stars can bring. From seeing comets to understanding what’s going on at CERN. Who knows, maybe one of the kids will grow up to be the next Neil deGrasse Tyson or Neil Turok?
While we might like to think we have time to learn every single constellation and operate advanced computer-controlled telescopes and other gadgets, most of us wonâ€™t get around to it anytime soon, even if the idea really excites us.
What we can get around to is learning a constellation or two, finding out where a cool planet is tonight, or discovering how to see the brightest galaxy through binoculars – things that the following pages can help you learn about.
Then, when a truly big sky event comes up â€“ one that makes the evening news (think meteor shower or eclipse) â€“ youâ€™ll be all-the-more excited to take part.
