Tonight R and I went along to the University of Western Sydney for a family astronomy night. The night started with a fun lecture and slide show all about our own solar system, sun and planets. Then we saw a 3D movie about missions to Mars and a film from the Space Station. Outside we used some huge telescopes to view the stars, spiral galaxies, Moon craters and the and rings of Saturn. We got another looks at the stars through the observatory's dome telescope. Inside R did a chemistry experiment to identify 3 white powders using solubility and chemical reactions. A fun night but no pictures for you.
