Mims Elementary Astronomy Night
Last night I helped out with Astronomy Night at Mims Elementary. Radio Disney was there "DJing" and we had an educator from the Orlando Science Center come out and talk to the kids about the planets and moons. We set up a bunch of different stations in the cafeteria that were related to space for the kids to visit. My station was teaching kids about comets.
As the night progressed and it became darker, the Brevard and Kennedy Space Center Astronomical Society set up their awesome telescopes and the kids got to view Saturn, the brightest star Sirius, the star Betelgeuse which is the second brightest star in the Orion constellation, the planet Venus, and so much more!! Everyone had such a great time!
