“The children were able to see the sky as daylight fades and night comes. They found out all about the patterns the stars make in the night sky and what the space station looks like from Earth.

“After the show in the dome the children found out all about the first moon landing by Neil Armstrong and looked at a very detailed model of the space rocket. The children had an amazing time.”
