Did you know that it can take one million years for the light from a star to reach you? That means a star could have burnt out one million years ago, and we would just be finding out. Talk about slow traveling news!


Explore the night sky!

Star Gazing

Discover the stars in your own backyard. Identify and name the stars up in the sky using the  Star Chart. PBS has developed a chart that shows you what stars are visible in your area each night. Have an adult help you print it out and go outside at night to see the beautiful night sky. Be an astronomer and discover stars and galaxies!
