Inside: Best Astronomy Books for Kids
This summer marks the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing, and we’re all turning our gaze to the night sky. We encourage you to gather on a comfy quilt, gaze up, and wonder. What would it be like to rocket to the moon? What would the view from space be like?
These questions are a great way to spark interest in stargazing this summer. And the summer season is a great time to explore the topic of astronomy. Slower schedules and later nights (and sleeping in the next day)!
