FREE Fun at The Lunar and Planetary Institute

The Lunar and Planetary Institute has free family friendly night sky viewing about 4 times a year.  Also, on that night, they have fun hands-on activities for children.  We've done these activities in the past, and they are very cool yet educational.  

For more information, see Lunar and Planetary Institute's website.  

Until this year, the institute had free Family Space Days on a monthly basis.  They are moving these fun days to local libraries, and the website says to check your local library to find a program nearest you.

In addition, at the website, on the left-hand side, you will see activities that were used in past Family Space Days.  For example, under moon, there are many activities and worksheets available to print and use at home.  One of our favorites was making the phases of the moon with Oreo cookies!  Yum!
