Star gazing at the beach

Last night we went to the beach to do a little star gazing.  We got there about 8pm and stayed till 10pm and had a blast.  Since we are learning about stars, planets, and solar system, I thought it would be fun to do something different.  star gazingOne the way to the beach we looked up on the internet some stories about the constellations and how they got in the s20120722-212448.jpgky.  The girls played on the beach till it got dark and then we lied on our blanket and took out my new favorite app (sky view – you can see starts through your walls in your home
at neat – so cool!!) to find all the constellations and stars.  It was neat see how the planets are starting to align. If you haven’t done this do it before the summer up, what a fun night for the whole family!!
