Take a trip to an instrument designed to show you a view of the stars.
1) For this objective, we want you to take in a view of the stars. Identify either a planetarium or an observatory you’d like to visit.
If you choose to visit a planetarium, make sure to take in a show related to space. (No laser light shows! Although those are pretty cool…)
If you choose to visit an observatory, be sure to visit when it is open to the public, and take a tour inside. You should find yourself in a situation to learn about the workings of the telescope, and may even get a chance to look through it! Make sure to ask lots of questions while you’re there.
3) While on your adventure, collect three interesting facts or observations. Report your facts/observations in the comments below.
4) Take a photo of yourself in front of the planetarium or observatory. Post it on Instagram or Twitter with the tag #QuestScouts. You can also share your experiences in our Facebook group.
