The Fernbank Science Center has several cool events going on this month. One program is “Night and Day”. It runs January 9-30. Explore the motion of the sun, find the moon, and draw some pictures of the stars.
Another program is called “Two Small Pieces of Glass”. It runs January 7-30. While attending a local star party, students learn how the telescope has helped us understand our place in space and how telescopes continue to expand our understanding of the universe. This program also takes a look at seasonal stars and constellation patterns.
The third program is called “The Sky Tonight” is a Saturday program that gives a guided tour through the constellations, planets, and events of the current evening sky. This program is presented all year except December.
