Kids’ Sky Tour 5/14/2020

One of the Coca-Cola Space Science Center’s educators, Sarah Nupen, leads a kid-friendly sky tour showing how to navigate the night sky and some of the constellations you can see in May.

She references our cardinal directions; the constellations Ursa Major, Ursa minor, Bootes, Virgo; and even some Hawaiian starlines! This is a chance to hear the stories of the constellations, learn some star names, and start to recognize patterns in the sky so you can go outside tonight and see what’s up!
