Star dome!

posted 5 Dec 2014, 04:05 by H Killen
On Tuesday we had a special visitor from an astronomer who brought in his star dome to show us! It was huge and took up most of the hall! As you can see from the pictures, we had to crawl through a tunnel and clamber into the star dome. Once inside, it was pitch black (which explains the lack of photographs!) The dome was lit up with beautiful stars and the astronomer explained lots of different constellations to us, and the stories behind them. We then got to see the Earth, Moon and Sun inside the dome, and learnt more Scientific facts about them.
