Kika Silva Planetarium
Yesterday, we went to the Kika Silva Planetarium for a field trip. The Planetarium is on the campus of Santa Fe College. This was our first class there, but we will return hopefully next month. The class was on stars, and DJ will be doing a writing assignment on stars, hopefully this week. We were only allowed to take one picture and as you can see it wasn't that great. But, after we got to ask questions to the Astronomer who did the class. If I did not mention it, last Thursday a meteor came right over Florida and caused a huge sonic boom and our house shook like we were in an earthquake. I so wish I had been outside with the dogs, like I normally would be, but alas I was not. The dogs got to see it, but I did not. I asked him why NASA could not see the meteor coming at us, and he said because it was not big enough. This particular meteor was about the size of a suitcase, but still not large enough for them to pick it up before it entered the Earth's atmosphere. No damage was done thank goodness. Then we went to the park for a chilly but not completely unpleasant lunch and play time.
Today, was a regular school day and so will tomorrow be. Next week we are visiting a Bee Farm.
